இடியப்பம் / Amma's Idiyappam / String Hoppers ( With Video)

Hai guys..Hope everyone had a great weekend. I was enjoying weekend with ma hubby in my mother's place, Since amma went for a outing with her collegues. We were looking after our little sister, had a great time together..We cooked together, had a nice chat and had lots of fun. I made a village style chicken curry and prepared the most amazing fried chicken, Seriously guys it was delicious. I will post that soon..

Now coming back to the recipe, this is one recipe from my mum. I took this pictures during one of my visit to her place. She is an expert in making this. Usually I used to cook food and take pictures all by myself. But this time I just stayed next to her and was clicking. I want to share this recipe with you all so badly because it taste so divine.

I even made a video of her making this. So enjoy this post.


Rice Flour - 1/2 kg
Salt to taste
Water - as needed


Heat water to a boil. Remove it and set aside.

Take rice flour in a bowl. Add salt to it and mix well.

Pour hot water over it and mix well. Form it into a soft dough.

Now take your string hopper maker and fill it with the dough.

Oil the string hopper steamer well.

Squeeze the string maker so that you will get the dough as threads over it.

Stack the plate and steam it for 10 mins.

Remove and serve with chutney.

Amma always use this brand of rice flour
First boil water
Take rice flour in a bowl
add salt to it
now slowly add in the hot water and mix
Mix carefully because the dough will be hot
Make it like a smooth dough
Now take your hopper maker..Amma has both the traditional ones
but she likes to use this one a lot
Fill the maker with the dough
And take your hopper stand
She bought this recently, doesn't it look stunning

till you fill the plate
One done
Once you are done with everything, Stack em up
and steam
all steamed
Amma made a lovely coconut chutney with lots of curry leaves in it
