Vella Sevai Recipe | Jaggery Idiyappam Recipe | Idiyappam With Jaggery Syrup

Vella Sevai Recipe
Vella Sevai | Sweetened Idiyappam With Jaggery & Coconut Recipe with step by step photos. Idiyappam and Thengai Paal is my most favorite Idiyappam combo recipe. But V do not like Idiyappam with sweetenend Coconut milk instead he loves it with Jaggery Syrup. So whenever I make Idiyappam, I make a thin jaggery syrup and peanut sesame powder for him. But this time for a change, I prepared a thick sauce and stirred with idiyappam and served. He liked it but said the sweetness was less. So I added more jaggery sauce for him and we three have it with mild sweet.
This Vella Sevai is delicious and equally healthy breakfast or after school snack for kids. My kids loved it a lot. Steamed foods are generally healthy and instead of rice flour, you can use Red rice flour or Ragi Flour or Wheat Flour or Millet Flour to make Idiyappam. Next time I am planning to try with wheat flour/Atta.
