Noolputtu - Kerala Style Idiyappam - Steamed Rice Noodles...

Roasted Rice Powder - 2 cups (I used Double Horse)Boiling Water - 1 1/2 to 2 cupsSalt - as neededGrated Coconut - 1 cup or as neededOil - 1 Tsp

Boil water with oil and enough salt.Take the roasted rice powder in a bowl and gradually add the boiling water little by little. Mix with a wooden spatula.Add water till you get a smooth and soft dough (be careful the dough will be hot). The dough should not be too tight and it should not be sticky also.Boil water in the steamer.Grease the idli steamer with little oil. (it will prevent the Idiyappam from sticking) and sprinkle little grated coconut on these moulds.Fill the idiyappam maker with smooth dough and rotate the handle. Fill the idli moulds with the noodles coming out of the idiappam maker.Once the steam comes from the steamer, place the filled idli moulds and steam the idiyappams for about 8 - 10 minutes. Cook on medium flame. Once done, take out the moulds and leave for 2-3 minutes.Serve hot with any curry.. or it can be best served with sugar and thick coconut milk.


If using home made rice powder, roast it well to the perfect.If using an ready-made , use the best quality one.Do no add too much water to the dough, as it will be difficult to get the dough out of the mould and strings will not be perfect.
