Ragi Idiyappam

This is my "First Post for 2017" and hence would like to start with a healthy recipe
Normally Idiyappam is done using rice flour but for those of you who are very health and weight conscious this is an ideal choice
Ragi is also rich in calcium and iron

  • Hot Boiling Water - 1.5 cups
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Oil - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Idiyappam Press
  • Grated Coconut - Garnish


Method
Step 1 -Preparing the Dough
  • Boil water with salt and oil
  • Pour it little by little over the roasted ragi flour
  • Mix it using a ladle
  • Keep it closed for about 15 minutes
  • When it hot to touch knead to a smooth dough
Step 2 - Idiyappam
  • Take a small portion of  dough and place it inside the idiyappam press
  • Squeeze it over a idiyappam steaming plates or idly plate
  • Stem it for 10 minutes


  • If using a idiyappam steaming plate, take it out using a ladle
