Watch: How To Make South Indian-Style Idiyappam In Just 10 Minutes (Recipe Video Inside)


What comes to your mind when we say South Indian cuisine? One of the most popular answers is comforting. As rich as the culture of South Indian regions, this cuisine is flavourful and extensive. While some of the dishes got global popularity, others remained less explored. How we love dosa, idli and vada! Isn’t it? But have you tried idiyappam yet? Idiyappam is one popular breakfast that tastes the best when paired with ishtew (or stew). Also called string hooper, (or nool pottu/noolappam), it is a rice noodle dish originating from the kitchens in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Idiyappam consists of rice flour, which is pressed into noodles and women into a flat disc-like shape and steamed. According to food wizard Ashwin Rajagopalan, idiyappam is also a popular dish in Sri Lanka, “While it’s not every day fare in most parts of South India, it is almost a staple in most parts of Sri Lanka. There’s another key difference, while the idiyappam in most parts of South India is crafted white rice, it’s common to spot both brown rice and white rice variants in Sri Lanka,” he added.

Considering the popularity, we bring you a super easy recipe that will help you make idiyappam at home in just 10 minutes. This recipe has been shared by food vlogger Ananya Banerjee (on her YouTube channel). Without further ado, let’s take a look at the recipe.
