This one of my moms flavoring recipe….As I told before this is one of the style of preparing idiyappam and we used to call it as sevai… We can flavor it with lemon/tamarind and coconut…..many more…….here we go…

Hand full of Raw rice
2 ½ tsp salt.
Coconut oil for greasing hands and seasoning
Instructions
Soak rice in luke warm water for 2 hours
Grind to smooth paste in grinder. Add salt at the end of grinding,
Take a heavy bottem pan and pour the batter and cook till it becomes thick dough. And grease the hands and make small balls and steam in idli plate.
When the idlis are warm put it in the greased sevai maker (available in shops) and press it.
When all the batter is used up in the same manner, allow the prepared white sevai to cool down.
Spread it in broad plate and separate them using oiled hands carefully,
