Wheat Idiyappam Recipe / Gothumai Idiyappam Recipe / Wheat Flour String Hoppers Recipe

I love making idiyappams or string hoppers whatever you call them. i have quite a few collections of them in this blog too..I have ragi idiyappam and rice idiyappam..I have plans to make millets idiyappam too..These idiyappams make a perfect breakfast, since they are steamed, it is easily digestable and feels light on your stomach.

This version is made with wheat flour, i added a little rice flour to make it more soft. I also roasted the wheat flour little because it removes the raw smell from the idiyappam and remove the gummy texture from it. The idiyappam turned out so soft and i had it with coconut chutney.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Resting Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 8 to 10 mins per batch
Serves : 4


Wheat Flour / Atta - 1 cup
Store Bought Rice Flour - 1/4 cup

Heat water to a boil. Remove it.

Take wheat flour in a kadai and roast it for 5 mins. Add in rice flour and salt to it and mix well.

Pour hot water over it and mix well. Once it starts to come together, cover the bowl with a lid and let it sit for 15 mins.

After 15 mins, add a tsp of oil and Form it into a soft dough.

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

Oil the idli plates as well(if you want)
