Idiyappam flour( roasted riceflour) 1 cup
Hot boiling Water 2cup (approx)
Salt to taste.
Method of preparing the dough
Take idiyappam flour in a wide mouth vessal add salt and keep it ready for making a dough.
Boil 2 - 3 cup of water in a vessel. When it is briskly boiling add enough of boiling water to the rice flour and mix thoroughly with the wooden idiyappam spatula (it can be even the wooden dosa laddle) .Mix it with only with spatula ( we cant mix it with our hands cos our hands cant with stand the heat of boiling water) now add cool water little by little and mix it well again. when u touch the dough should be as soft like a cotton ball . It should not be sticky also. so we have to be careful while mixing the dough.
In the mean time. heat the idli cooker with a required amount of water for steaming idiyappam . Keep the idiyappam plate in it and steam for some time. so that the idiyappam will not stick with the plate. we can remove it in a good shape.
Make lemon sized ball with the dough and put the dough in to idiyappam maker (wooden idiyappam ural - available in all shops in tamilnadu ). Press the dough gently in the greased idiyappam plates in circular form so that u get good shaped idiyappam . Use all the dough in the same manner for making idiyappam.
Steam the Idiyappam in the idli cooker for 5 -10 min. keep in medium flame and steam it. Then remove from idli cooker and place the plates upside down and Remove idiyappam for the plate gently.
Serve Idiyappam hot with vegetable stew/ thengai paal (coconut milk)/ coconut with sugar/ chicken kuzambu, mutton kuzhambu or thakkali kuzhambu (tomato) .
