Cooking Time: 40 minutes               Serves:2 

In today's age of instant rice noodles, here is a guest post from cardamom, showing the elaborate way to prepare idiappam.

Idiappam podi - 1 cup
Salt -1/4 teaspoon

1. To make idiappam, first boil the water until it starts bubbling vigorously.
2. Take the flour in another vessel, add the salt and pour the hot water gradually into it, stirring constantly till it becomes a smooth slightly wet dough.

3. Use the idiappam molds (idiyappa achi) to squeeze out the dough onto the idiappam stand (or any plate for steaming).

4. Steam this in an idli cooker for 15 mins.
5. Wait for it to cool down, then transfer the idiappam to the serving plate.

 It is the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of hot stew!
