Ingredients (Translation)

1 cup fine rice flour
1 cup water
Salt to taste
Oil for greasing
Coconut milk- 1/2 cup
Sugar to taste

Boil water and add salt to it. Switch off the gas and slowly add it to the fine rice flour. Mix well and let it cool for some water. Knead it well to get a soft dough.

Add some of the dough into the idiappam press (i used the ones with which i make omampodi or sev)and press it into greased idli plates or idiappam plates whichever you have to make small idiappams.

Steam it in the pressure cooker until cooked and serve hot with sweet coconut milk.

These look nice, and I will be in Kerala in around 3 weeks time! I can't wait.

Are these similar to stringhoppers?

Thanks Raks kitchen and Laavanya

@ Suguna..Did you try using the correct quantity of water?? even a bit more would spoil the entire process. Were you able to push the dough out through the idiappam press??

Looking for something
