Idiyappam is a famous Tamilnadu dish which can be had as breakfast, lunch or dinner! Generally, the cooked rice flour is made in to noodles and steamed. It can be served with kuruma, ishtu or sweetened coconut milk. I have used Ragi flour and Autolysis helps to get soft noodles . I served the idiyappam with ishtu, made of potatoes and sprouted fenugreek/methi seeds. Check OPOS section for the recipe.
