VARIETY IDDIYAPPAM(Rice vermicelli)



VARIETY IDDIYAPPAM(Instant Rice vermicelli)

Before starting this I would like to say how we traditionally do iddiyappam, We soak raw rice grind to smooth batter and make idlis out of it. Then put those idlies in iddiyappam maker which has small holes and handle for rotating, when the handle is rotated it presses down the idli and through the hole we get strings which we call 'saarasthul' or 'string hoppers' or 'Iddiyappam'. With that we make dhal iddiyappam(pappu sarasthul), tamarind flavour and sweet paagu made out of coconut which is poured over plain idiyappam served with ghee. It extremely tastes delicious. But its very difficult to bring those maker everywhere. So I made this out of Instant Rice Vermicelli which is easily available in Indian grocery store. Even though it does not taste exactly how we make from fresh ones this also satisfies our taste, a alternate to that Iddiyappam.
