Paddu or guliyappa recipe explained with step by step pictures and video. Guliyappa or paddu is a popular breakfast recipe from Karnataka. The batter used for guliyappa or paddu is slightly different from dosa. Paddu or guliyappa is also popular by name paniyaram and gundponglu. Paddu or appe is also a perfect lunch box recipe for kids. You can serve guliyappa or paddu with chutney and sambar.

There are two variants of guliyappa or paddu in Karnataka. One is plain, which is prepared using the plain batter. And the second one is masala paddu, which is prepared by mixing finely chopped onion, green chilli and curry leaves in the batter. If you like the taste and flavor of sabsige soppu or dill leaves then you must read this sabsige soppu paddu recipe. I have also posted one sweet appa or banana paddu recipe. Do read that as well.

To prepare guliyappa, a different type of pan with pits is used, which is also familiar by name appe pan. "guli" translates to "pits" in Kannada language so is the name guliyappa or guliappa. This is a kids friendly recipe and a perfect recipe for the snacks or lunch box. This is a very tasty paddu or paniyaram or gundponglu recipe.
