We usually make idiyappam| Sevai in the traditional way using Sevai nazhi. Sometimes we make idiyappam using rice flour also and press in the murukku press. I always wanted to try idiyappam using Ragi flour. A few days back when I tried it at home for a cookery class, it turned out very soft and yum. Do read the post completely to make soft idiyappams.

Why the idiyappams are coming out dry

The dough is made too tight and so the idiyappams are dry.

Why is it hard to squeeze the idiyappam

If the dough is too tight, it is difficult to squeeze it. So sprinkle some hot water and make the dough soft and pliable.

Why my idiyappams are breaking?

   If the dough is dry, then idiyappams will break while squeezing.

    Can I make the idiyappam in advance and serve it later?

Yes, you can do it. Always keep the cooked idiyappam covered and just steam it for 2 minutes just before serving.  Or sprinkle few drops of water on it and microwave for 1 minute or two. Idiyappam stays good at room temperature for 4 hours during summer and for 8 hours in winter.
