Idiappam is one of the many breakfast dishes of Kerala. Rice noodles made from scratch and steam cooked in small rounds/mounds to resemble idlis. For breakfast they are often paired with egg curry. Another way to eat these for breakfast is by dipping in slightly sweetened coconut milk. Yum! That is still my favorite way of eating these noodles. And now my son also loves it that way. My daughter loves them just as is with some sugar sprinkled on the top and when she was little she used to call them as ‘noodle idlis’ and the name stuck! Now we all refer to idiappam as ‘noodle idlis’ 🙂
These noodles are a great option for folks who are on a gluten-free diet . The last time we made it we paired it with yummy chicken curry. You need a ‘sev’ noodle press like I show below in the pictures to make these as well as an idli stand if you want to make them into small round shapes. You could also just steam them in a steamer basket by just forming the noodles like regular noodles.
