This is lemon flavoured string hoppers or Iddiyappam or Rice vermicelli . To this I just added edamame which was absolutely delicious and nutritious. Edamame is shelled soybeans. It is a complete protein, containing all the Essential Amino acids. It is a great source of fiber, Essential Fatty Acids and Isoflaves(found only in soy). It is good to consume atleast 25 grams of soy protein everyday. So this way we can add soy to our day today items. Edamame is easily available in super markets in frozen section.


Instant Iddiyappam - 2 cups
Lemon - 1
Edamame - 1/2 cup
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Green chillies- 3
Few curry leaves
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Roasted cashew for garnishing
Turmeric for colour - 1 tsp
Salt and oil as required

For Tempering :

Mustard - 1 tsp
Channa dhal- 1 tsp
Urad dhal - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - pinch


Microwave the edamame as instructed in the package. Grind ginger, chillies and keep it aside. Prepare iddiyappam by soaking them in hot water for 5 minutes and let it drain well until there is no water. Now in the frying pan heat some oil, add mustard and dhals. Then start adding these ingredients asafoetida, curry leaves, ginger+chilli paste, turmeric, edamame one by one and fry well. Now add prepared iddiyappam, salt and lemon juice mix well, adjust salt and sourness according to your taste. Garnish with coriander leaves and fried cashewnuts. It is ready to serve.
