Idiyappam is a common breakfast dish in Kerala and Tamilnadu. It is made of rice flour and is a very healthy breakfast as it is steamed. Last month we had been to coorg there they served us idiyappam for the breakfast with black channa curry, from there i became a fan of this dish. Keeping that taste in my mind i also prepared this idiyappam on 15th Aug for breakfast. Usually people make this idiyappam in a very different way. I feel this is the best and very simple idea. Do try and let me know...
1 cup rice flour
Water as required to make a soft dough
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt as required.
In a mixing bowl, take rice flour, add salt, oil and water to make a soft dough. Knead it well. Grease the inside of the idiyappam maker with oil and fill it with the prepared dough and press it in a circular motion on idly plate in the form of long strings. Then steam it for 10-15 minutes. I used my idly pot for steaming.
The basic idiyappam is ready. It can be served with any curry of your choice or coconut chutney.
