Idiyappam

Idiyappam is a weekend Breakfast dish at our
home.Amma makes idiyappam with the long
elaborate process...Soaking the rice , grinding
to a nice paste , stir fry to form a dough, steamed and
pressed..But the result is worth the labor..After lot
of tried and tested methods I come to this method
which is somehow similar to Amma's..
Ingredients
Rice flour - 1 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Boiling water
Oil - 1 tsp
Method
  • Dry roast the rice flour . ( the correct consistency is you can draw lines or kolam with this flour).
  • Add salt and boiling water to this and mix with a spoon till getting soft dough.
  • Apply oil on top of this.
  • Grease the idli plates . Take some dough in the idiyappam press . And using circular motion fill each mould.
  • Steam the idiyappam for 10 min.
  • Serve with stew or any curries.I like to eat with coconut and sugar.

That looks perfect Kamala. We need special rice flour for this right? or can we use the rice flour that we get in indian grocery stores?
