Standard

Idiyappam / String Hoppers is one of the common breakfast or dinner among all south Indian families. When it comes to veg, Idiyappam goes out well with Vegetable stew and with egg it goes out well with Muttai curry or egg roast and with non-veg it goes out well with Paya (lamb Leg Curry) or Chicken kurma or any stew or Chicken salna. Most commonly it is served with grated coconut and sugar or Coconut milk and sugar for babies above 8 months. Also Idiyappam is one of my all-time favorite food with grated coconut and sugar for breakfast and with lamb leg curry or Paya for dinner. Let me share the recipe…
