Idiyappam / String Hoppers

Serves: 4


Rice Flour - 2 cups
Boiling Water - 2 cups
Cooking Oil - 2 teaspoons + greasing
Salt to taste

For Aid:
Idiyappam/Sev Press
Steaming Pot


  1. Pour water into the steaming pot and set it on the flame.
  2. Grease the idiyappam steaming plates or idli steaming plates generously with oil.
  3. In a bowl, mix together rice flour, salt and oil.
  4. Pour the boiling water and mix it using a spatula.
  5. When the dough cools enough to be handled with your palms, knead the dough until it becomes soft and smooth. The dough hardens on cooling down, so knead while it is still hot.
  6. Take small portions of this dough and roll them into oval shape to fit into the idiyappam/sev press.
  7. Apply pressure on the idiyappan/sev press using your palms and move it in circles within the idiyappam steaming plates or idli steaming plates.
  8. Place the steaming plates in the steaming pot, cover the pot and cook for 15 minutes on high flame.
  9. Remove the lid and let idiyappam cool down for a few minutes.
  10. Serve with vegetable stew or as you prefer.
