Idiyappam/ Noolappam/ Sevai – A popular Kerala breakfast dish made of rice flour and cooked in steam.
Rice flour passed in idiyappam maker gives noodles like strings. Nool means string, thus the name “Nool appam”.
Idiyappam and Motta curry (Egg curry), Idiyappam and Paal (Sugar added milk/ coconut milk) are well known words for Keralites and come to mind immediately when thinking about Kerala breakfast items.
Here I’m putting some bay leaves in the water for steaming to give a nice aroma to the Idiyappam.:P
As I have large holes in the mould I’m getting thick strings of small Idiyappams. I’m adding grated coconut is on the bottom and top of the Idiyappam, but coconut can be added in the middle of the Idiyappam – Squeeze the half idiyapam, add coconut and then squeeze other half idiyappm on the top of that.
Don’t allow the dough to dry, so always put a wet towel on the top of the dough while squeezing/ steaming other Idiyappams.
