Ingredients and preparation

Idiyappam is a delicate and healthy dish made with rice flour, water, and salt. It requires a different type of machinery to prepare like the idiyappam press to get the perfect noodle-like structure and a steamer to steam them. Traditionally Idiyappam was prepared by a slightly harder procedure of grinding the wet rice into a fine paste but after the introduction of rice flour cooking, Idiyappam becomes a lot easier.

After mixing rice flour with hot water and a bit of salt, the dry paste is pressed into the Idiyappam press to get the delicate, noodle-like shape and then it is steamed in a steamer for a few minutes. Sprinkling some coconut on this will only increase its taste and texture.

Side dishes available

Idiyappam can be consumed with a variety of curries. Its simplicity makes the side dishes standout. You can eat idiyappam with sweetened coconut milk for a traditional experience. Idiyappam can be eaten with meat stews, green peas curry, pickles, chicken gravy, and kadala curry.
