These are freshly pressed noodle clusters/ bunches/ patties, delicately steamed to perfection.This is one dish which will workout very well even if you make mistakes at any point of time and there is no compromise in taste too. Iddiappam is quick & healthy as it is steamed. It’s a culinary specialty in Tamilnadu, Kerala, coastal areas of Karnataka & is also popular in certain areas of Srilanka.

  • Mix 1 cup of rice flour with 1 cup warm water,1 tsp ghee & salt.
  • Knead into smooth dough. Apply little oil over the dough and insert into the press. Idiyappam maker is same as the chakli maker.
  • Put a small quantity of dough into the press and press it on the idly moulds greased with oil.
  • Steam the idly cooker for 8-10 minutes.
Iddiappams are served with a variety of veg & non-veg curries as well as dressings, sauces, chutneys, etc.

My variations-
1.        Modak puran - mix of grated coconut, jaggery & ghee.
2.      Orange-honey-ginger dressing – reduce orange juice, honey & ginger till saucy consistency.
3.      Green mirchi thecha
