Here comes a breakfast recipe.Its easy to make when u have instant rice flour.I always use Nirapara idiappam podi.Its very soft like sponge,when made with Nirapara idiappam podi.In kannur(My home country) we call it as nool puttu.

Also you can prepare the rice flour at home.Wash and soak raw rice(Pachari) for few hours. Drain well and allow it to dry completely.Grind it to a fine powder and dry roast it.


Fine Rice Flour – 1 cups
Water – approx 1 cups
Salt – as needed
Grated Coconut – 1/4 cup
Thick Coconut milk – 1 tsp (Optional)
Oil – as needed

Accessories Needed:-
Idiappom Press
Idli Mould

Boil water in a pan,adding required amount of salt and 1 tsp oil into it.Pour the boiled water little by little to the rice flour,stirring in between,until it is ready to make into a smooth dough.

Allow it to cool for a while.When it is half cooled,knead it with your hand into a smooth dough.Lightly grease the idiappom press and the idli mould to prevent sticking.Add 1/2 a spoon of grated coconut into each idli plate.Spoon some dough into the idiappom press,close the lid and squeeze the dough onto the idli plates in a circular motion.
Garnish each idiappam with a little more grated coconut.

Now place the idli plates in a steamer and steam it until done.Allow it to cool for a while and carefully remove the idiappams to a serving bowl.
