Puli Idiyappam

Puli idiyappam is my mom’s signature recipe. She makes for dinner along with other varieties like sweet and Paruppu Idiyappam recipe I have blogged already. Just make plain Idiyappam and mix with pulikachal. Ready! My mom makes jaggery syrup and pulikachal in advanced so that she can mix and make sweet and puli idiyappam in no time. Of course making idiyappam is a tedious process. But we all used to help her… I can eat this non stop. Love it! And sure who ever loves puliyogare, will love this too!!


I already have posted both recipes for basic Idiyappam and pulikachal. Just copy pasting the idiyappam process.

Puli idiyappam recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 25 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Idiyappam flour / Rice flour (raw rice flour is preferred)  1 cup 
Water  As needed 
Sesame oil  1 tsp 
Salt  Only if needed 

    Please refer here for Pulikachal Recipe.
    In case you dont have pulikaichal, Season with 1 tblsp Sesame oil in a kadai - mustard, urad dal, channa dal, peanuts, asafoetida, curry leaves. Then add 1/4 cup tamarind extract (or 1 & 1/2 tsp tamarind paste) and boil till thick. Add it to the idiyappam.

  Method:

  1. Take the flour in a wide bowl and mix hot water as needed,using a spatula. Let it get cooled until it turns warm enough to knead. How much you boil the water to make idiyappam is important. Heat water until small bubbles start appearing everywhere in the bottom of the vessel. i.e; It should be just about to boil and NOT rolling boil.  If its rolling boil then the dough will get too much cooked when you make dough and it will be difficult for you to press. Even if its not heated well, then the idliyappam will turn too dry. So let it be just right, which you will learn from experience. 
  2. Mix
  3. Make a smooth dough without lumps and it should be non sticky. Not too firm too. If its very stiff,then it will be difficult to press through. So add water if needed. Keep covered.
  4. Dough
  5. I got these lovely bamboo mesh like things,meant for steaming from my periya maami.
  6. Mesh
  7. Its very handy,it easy to handle/manage and the cooking is done very fast. I like it!
  8. You can use idly plates very well,so grease the idly plate/mesh with few drops of oil. Press the idiyappam in a circular way,make sure you don't layer too much. Grease the idiyappam press too (inside) to enable easy pressing.
  9. Steam cook these just till its cooked,dont over cook(Takes one minute,if you keep Inside after the water boils),coz that will make  the separating part bit tougher.Make batches until u finish the dough.
  10. Steamed
  11. Now the basic idiyappam is ready.

For Making Puli Idiyappam :

  1. Cool down the idiyappam and mix required pulikachal along with little sesame oil.
  2. Pulikachal
  3. Adjust salt as needed and puli idiyappam is ready,enjoy!

Notes

  • After you make plain idiyappam, just fluff with you fingers little. No need to make it separate that time,as after we add oil and pulikachal, it will be easily separated itself!
  • When you taste immediately after mixing,the spice level and salt should be a tiny little more than required so that at the time we eat,it will be just right.

Soft idiyappam with yummy pulikachal makes awesome combo! Do try if you like it!
