kambu idiyappamHand-made idiyappams from scratch is my favourite it means all the way from soaking the rice,grinding and steaming.We get a nice soft and fluffy sevai’s and its always confidently delicious and satisfactory. Either we call it as idiyappam or a sevai its always very mild to our tummy and a most recommended diet and patient friendly food.In the same way we can replace ragi or any other millets instead of kambu and do this idiyappam. kambu idiyappamThe sweet version given here is our own style that we do regularly at our home and its our traditional style,sure its delicious if you are a sweet lover. I have two idiyappam varieties here in my blog the one is normal white sevai with bella pagu. The other one is the savoury version of the same idiyappam with lemon. This time I have done this idiyappam with kambu and this millet idiyappam is fully loaded with Iron and other minerals. I have already Kambu kollukattai and even kambu koozh in my blog.
