PLAIN IDIYAPPAM AND THENGAI SEVAI

Idiyappam | Sevai | string hoppers is a very rare dish we make it at home. My mom makes it regularly using the traditional  Sevai Nazhi , which is very tough( i feel) but we used to help her when we were kids. She makes variety of Sevai and i will soon post the recipes of the sevai soon. My kids don’t prefer much and only me and my hubby only eat this and whenever i make this i do for dinner only.So never had chance to click. Somehow  last week i managed to make this for breakfast and clicked too. This is very handy if you don’t have Idli | dosa batter at home. I used the idiyappam flour but you can use plain rice flour too.

After a minute take it out from the idli plate and transfer it a wide plate and cover it with a damp cloth to keep it moist and to avoid drying. Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.

  1. It happens most of the time with me Jeyashri, since we don't have breakfast we end up making most of the breakfast items in the evening for dinner and hence am not able to click 🙂
    Our whole family loves idiyappam…very nicely made

  2. nice clicks…loved thengai sevai too… today morning only i made sevai but with paruppu…i mean paruppu sevai…. As sobha said my mother use to follow the procedure of grinding and pressing, again cooking….will be so delicious…

  3. wow..nice..i tried it..I dint get non-sticky sevai. idiappam was nice but not able to get non-sticky pieces..It appeared like idly upma..i dont know what the mistake is..is that because of my idly plate have holes????

    • Thanks for trying. The reason for sticky ness may be becoz the water must have boiled little too much. Just add the water when it is hot not rolling boil.do not over steam too

  4. Hi Jeyashri,
    Your recipes are simply great.. The way of presentation, although a complex dish, makes it look simple.
    I tried out idiappam and it turned out very well..
    I have suggested your site to my friends.
    Happy blogging

  5. Hi Jeyashri, Thanks for the recipe. Btw, I dont have idiyappam flour or kozhakattai flour. Can I make it with normal store-bought rice flour? Will the result be same?

  6. I tried idiyappam but it doesn't separate. It looks like idli. So I couldn't make a proper sevai out of it. Any idea where I went wrong.? Should I add little more oil?

  7. dear jeyashri, Can you post how to prepare idiyappam flour in rice mill buying ready made so costly comparing our preparation idiyappam is very healthy dish like idly i usually prepare two times a week pls post soon
