Roasted Rice flour – 1 cup (250 ML)
Boiled water – 1/2 cup
Grated Coconut – 1 Cup
Salt – To taste
Preparation time – 5 minutes
Cooking Time – 15 – 20 Minutes
Take roasted rice flour in a pan, add salt and mix it well; then add boiling water little by little, mixing it well till it leaves the sides of the vessel and becomes non sticky. Roll it into a ball as shown in picture. You can take more flour according to the number of members in the family. With one cup flour you get 4 Idiyappam.
Take the Idiyappam maker open the lid and fill it with the prepared flour; cover it with the lid and press it down in a circular motion into an idly plate. When it is ½ filled add coconut on top and press down some more flour to cover the coconut. Close the idly steamer when all the mixed flour gets over and cook it. Steam will be gushing out from the steamer and after 15 – 20 minutes.you can off the stove, open the lid and take the idly plate out and keep to cool, remove the Idiyappam into another dish with the help of a spoon or knife. And your soft and tasty Idiyappam is ready to be eaten.
You can eat this with egg, meat or any vegetable curry. My grandma would give us Idiyappam with coconut milk and Jaggery as snack for evening tea, a very delicious dish we children loved to eat.
Now it’s time for me to consume this Idiyappam, I am a bit lazy to make any curry now so want to enjoy it with coconut milk and honey. You can eat it with sugar also but may not be healthy. This is a very easy dish to make for breakfast and tea.
