Idiappam / Sandhakai / Nool Puttu

As I had mentioned earlier, we are still finding hard to allot time for blogging. To make matters even worse is our forthcoming trip to India. Yes, we have planned a vacation to India in July. Though it is saddening that we have to wait for a few more weeks to post more frequently, we are excited about the vacation and have a busy shopping scheduled.

Meanwhile here is one ready made food recipe which we tried last week.

Idiyappam/Sandhakai/Noolputtu - rice noodles from south india.

The instructions were very simple and straight forward.

Boil water in a vessel. The amount of water should be just enough to immerse the entire packet content in it.

Switch off the stove. Unpack the idiappam packet and pour the contents into the water and make sure it is fully immersed.

Wait for 1 full minute and then drain the water.

Idiappam is ready. You can have it with coconut chutney or any other side dish of your choice.

I was not sure how it would turn out until we tried. It came out pretty good. I was really surprised to see that the taste was just close to the way idiyappam prepared in the traditional way.
