Idiyappam (Malayalam) is also known as Semige in Tulu, Shavige in Kannada, string hoppers in English, Shevyo in Goa and Sevaya in Maharashtra. They are steamed and served along with any veg, non-veg curry or coconut milk. It is mainly made with rice flour and served with spicy veg curry or sweet coconut milk. In this recipe I have used pearl millet or bajra flour instead of rice flour. Healthier version of Idiyappam, tastes heavenly with sweet coconut milk. Nutritious and wholesome dish, can be prepared using one of the Indian staple grain.
