Idiyappam is a Sri Lankan dish. It looks like noodles. It is one of my favourite dishes that my amma makes.
1/2 cup rice flour
1 cup cake flour
1/4 cup hot water
salt for taste
Idiyappam ural and plate (wooden mechanism to make the noodle shape)
Pot to steam
Steam the flours for 30 minutes
After steaming the flours, let it set for a few minutes
Add salt to the flour
Add the hot water with the flour till it becomes a firm dough
Squeeze the dough thorough the idiyappam ural onto idiyappa plate
Steam it in a closed pot for about 10 to 20 minutes
Tip: check whether its cooked – press slightly on the idiyappam to see a bounce while the pot is on the stove
Well, the products used in this dish are readily available in all grocery stores but the pots and dough squeeze are bought in Sri Lankan stores. I got mine in Toronto. The steam pot is AMC branded which is available in Johannesburg.
Enjoy your day!
