Idiyappam is a soft and yummy Indian noodle that is usually served with grated coconut, ghee, and sugar. It is also served with spicy chicken or mutton kuzhambu or any vegetarian curry in the Southern part of Tamilnadu. I had posted idiyappam from scratch years back. Now I am posting idiyappam using store bought rice flour, which is also as soft and delicious as idiyappam prepared from homemade rice flour.

  2. Add hot water little by little into the rice flour and mix well with a ladle as it will be very hot to handle. Then add sesame oil and mix well.
  3. Consistency of dough should be a soft and pliable dough. Cover with a lid and keep it aside until use.
  4. Fill an 'idiyappam' presser with the dough and press it on to slightly greased idly platter and steam for 8 to10 minutes or until it cooks. Serve hot with grated coconut,sugar and ghee or with any other curry.

Notes:
  • Idiyappam dough will be very hot, so handle with care.
  • Water should be in a rolling boil consistency to get soft and pliable dough.
  • You may increase or decrease the quantity of water as needed to make soft and pliable dough.
  • Press the dough immediately into idiyappam press when the dough is still hot. It becomes hard to press when the dough cools down.
