Idiyappam

       For this month's Blog Hop Wednesday i am paired with Divya of Divyazeasyrecipes. This is second time time i am paired with her. I really love all her recipes and this time i made Idiyappam. Idiyappam is one of fav food. i was planning to post idiyappam in my blog for long time, due ot one or the other reason i was postponing it  and when i saw this recipe in her space i ended my search. I love Idiyappam with Thengai paal/Coconut milk. I followed her direction with my rice flour:water ration. If u are doing with fresh homemade rice flour then you can do it simply by adding boiled water and knead it like chapathi dough but with store bough rice flour this method only help you to get soft and tasty Idiyappams. Today i made this idiyappam with Jaggery sauce and roasted peanut-sesame powder. If u haven't tried this combination before plz give it a try, (if u love sweet version). This is such a delicious recipe, i learnt this from my H, he taught me his Grandma's recipe.
      Today i really had a tough time with taking this Idiyappam picture. After a long time, today sun was shining very brightly.(but temp. 20F). Because of it i couldn't take a fine picture of this white color smooth texture of Idiyappam. Some how i managed but couldn't get fine image like i seen in some of my friend's blog. So did some editing to look good. Ok now to the recipe...

  • If u feel bit sticky, add 1-2 tsp of oil and keep stirring until you get a smooth dough.
  • Then turn off the stove and cover the dough for a minute and allow to cool for few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, grease your idly plates and get ready with your murukku press.
  • Then take the dough and pinch a big ball sized dough and put it into the murukku press and press gently in to the prepared greased idly plates.
