Ragi Idiyappam

I have always relied on store bought idiyappam so far when I had the urge of enjoying some. But of late, I have seen some posts from my fellow bloggers which convinced me that making them at home is easy and so here I am beaming with satisfaction of having made them at home.

Contrary to my fears that Ragi Idiyappam wouldn't be accepted by my family owing to the color, my husband and the older one enjoyed every bite of it! Can I ask for more??
Check out another diabetic friendly recipe for day 3 of BM #14.

Ragi Idiyappam

Ingredients - 

Ragi Flour 1/2 cup
Rice Flour 1/2 cup
Salt as needed
Water 1 cup (actually a little less than 1 cup)
Oil to spray on Idli plates

Tools used - Murukku Press and an Idli cooker

Ragi Idiyappam

Method Of Preparation -

In a sauce pan, boil water adding adequate salt. Reduce the heat and add the flours. Mix well stirring vigorously so there are no lumps and remove from fire. Cover and let it rest for 5-10 min.

Grease the murukku press and the idli plates. 

Spoon the ragi dough (I got a very soft dough) into the murukku press using the fine perforated disc. 

Press the dough as strings onto the idli plates.

Steam them for about 15 min. Let it cool for 5 min and remove the plates from the steamer.

Unmould the idiyappam and serve it with the accompaniment of your choice. We enjoyed with Peanut Chutney. But traditionally it is enjoyed with coconut based gravies or kurma.
