Idiyappam or String Hoppers or Noolappam

Though some call it Idiyappam,in our part of Kerala we call it Noolappam, maybe because it resembles a string ("noolu"). Its usually taken for breakfast or dinner along with a spicy curry. It is also served with sweetened coconut milk. This is Kerala's take on noodles or Pasta.

Roasted rice flour-1 cup
Warm Water-1and1/2 cups
Ghee or oil -1 tsp
Boil 1 and 1/2 cups of water along with salt and ghee.Mix the rice flour with the water
Knead into smooth dough. Insert the dough into the idiyappam press.
press it on  greased plate or idly moulds. Add grated coconut on top of the idiyappam.
Steam this in a steamer for 8-10 minutes.
