Making idiyappam/idiyappam with bella pagu

MAKING IDIYAPPAMBelieve me am totally mad about this stringy springy delight and will eat all day long especially when I relish it with jaggery coconut syrup (bella pagu).In our home we do it by steaming it as idli’s and then pressing it in idiyappam maker.Difference in taste is always there by making idiyappam  by  this method(by steaming the batter as idli’s).I still remember that I used to pester my patti to do this for me.Not only that even my amma used to do it as frequently as possible for my brother(myself included).

MAKING IDIYAPPAMMy son always plays with it by rotating the handle and not only that he is very particular in helping me to press out idiyappam from this machine.Making idiyappam is pleasurable job for me and it works well with kurma,paya,egg curries,sweetened thengai pal but most often it is paired with bella pangu in our home.Both my Patti and Amma does not add coconut to the batter while grinding but we love it as it is.From this basic idiyappam we used to do varies types of sevai.Of course I do idiyappam from rice flour now and then but steamed idli method means so much to me.In my circle every home has this special instrument starting from mother’s to my mother-in-laws place.
