Idiyappam (Rice Noodles)

Idiyappam is one dish I make quite often at home for breakfast or dinner. It takes less time to make and very tasty to eat. Idiyappam and Stew or Idiyappam and Chicken curry are the best combo for me. My mom makes Idiyappam in a hard way; she soaks rice in water for some hours then dries it, then grinds it to make fine powder. Since we are comforted with all the flours why to do the hard way!! Here goes the recipe :)


  • Mix 1 cup of rice flour with required warm water and salt.
  • Knead into smooth dough. Apply little oil over the dough and insert into the cooking press.
  • Put a small quantity of dough into the “cooking press" and press it on the idly moulds greased with oil. Add grated coconut on top of the idiyappam.
  • Steam the idly cooker for 8-10 minutes.

Serve hot with the curry you like:) I had it with Vegetable Kurma.

Hi Priya,

Yours is the first idiyappam recipe I've seen using rice flour rather than grinding rice - I will definitely try it now. Thanks for sharing this :)

I am sooo lazy, I buy the rice noodles from Chinese store and make idiyappam when I crave for it. This sounds a lot easier, I will try it

Hi Priya,
What rice flour you used?? Processed or plain??? I used to make idiyappam with processed rice flour. In Singapore we get ready made idiyappam flour.

Priya, I wanted to make Idiyappam for a long time, but kept postponing it due to the tedious preparation...But your recipe is so simple and hence I am going to make it for our Saturday breakfast. Thank you so much.
