I don't want to bore you anymore,with the stories about a Mallu's difficulties in living without the classic breakfasts for a while :-). The recipe is very simple yet a bit tricky.You will have to play with the consistency of the prepared dough. I can give you only an approximate measurement. It varies from rice to rice .So good luck for the first timers..here we go
Rice flour for Idiyappam- ~350g
(If you are using a normal rice flour then fry it for a few minutes on medium heat before making the dough )
Salt- to taste
Boiling water- ~250ml
Grated coconut-1/2 cup
1. Boil the water
2. Take the rice flour and salt in a big thick bottom vessel and mix it.
3.Keep this on low heat and start adding the boiling(yes, you read it correct it should be bubbling while you pour and be careful ) water while mixing with a spatula.
4. When you see that water is approximately enough switch off the heat and mix well.
5. Let it cool for a minute and mix it with your hand.
6.Make the idli plates ready with 1/2 spoon coconut on each impression of the idli plate.
7 Fill in the idiyappam maker with dough and press it into the idli plates
8.Steam it till the idiyappam is done.
9.Serve with egg curry, chicken curry or mutton curry. Vegetarians don't worry, you could have it with veg stew :-)
You could avoid coconut and then it will become a very healthy food :-)
