Idiyappam - The Mango Tree Indian Coastal Restaurant at I12 Katong

Idiyappam (String Hoppers) or noolappam or noolputtu is a traditional Indian food made from rice flour pressed into noodles and steamed, and is a breakfast or dinner dish commonly eaten by people in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Sri Lanka. Idiyappam = idi (ground down) + appam (kerala pancake). Main ingredients is rice flour or wheat flour, salt, oil, water. Check out the video below for a hands on guide to making the Idiyappam. 

Steps to making the Idiyappam
To hot water, add salt, 1-1.5 teaspoon oil.
Turn off flame, add rice flour to the water. 
Make rice flour into a dough. 
Using mould with fine holes makes it tastier.
Put dough into the pressing machine. 
Add 1 - 2 drops of oil onto Idli tray. 
Press out the Idiyappam onto the Idli tray. 
Steam the Idiyappam for a few minutes. 
Serve the Idiyappam with vegetable stew for a savory flavor, or with grated coconut to give a sweet flavor. 

The Idiyappam served at The Mango Tree is one of the better Idiyappam I have tasted. The rice noodles are soft, fine, moist and fluffy with a melt in your mouth texture. The grated coconut accompanying on top Idiyappam gives a fresh fragrant nutty flavor.
