This entry goes to Srivalli's breakfast mela 2011 .This is a very simple and healthy one .It does not have any oil at all and a steamed one too.Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients for idiyappam:
Raw rice flour-1cup
boiling water

  • Fry the rice flour just for five minutes on a slow fire so that it becomes little fluffy(we can put rangoli)Add required salt.
  • Add the boiling water so that it becomes a stiff dough.
  • Leave it for two minutes and by just sprinkling little cold water make it a smooth dough.
  • Squeeze it through the omapodi vessel or if you have the wooden idiyappam naazhi on a idli stand and steam it for ten minutes.The healthy idiyappam is ready to serve.

Ingredients for stew:
Coconut milk-2cups
Green chillies -4(according to spicy level)
 salt to taste                        

Slice the onions  and split  the green chillies .Add  one cup of water and boil it till it becomes transparent and soft Now add some salt to taste.. Add the tomato slices and continue boiling for more 5 minutes.Now simmer the gas and add the coconut milk .Switch off the gas.The stew is ready to serve.
