This is again unique to Kerala. It looks like noodles and can be called steamed rice noodles. It requires an idiappam maker/ presser and Idli maker/ steamer. It is usually enjoyed with peas curry, kadal curry , egg curry or with steamed bananas.
Place the rice flour in a bowl, add salt and slowly pour hot water and knead it into a soft dough
Add a teaspoon of cooking oil and knead again.
Now, put a part of the dough into the idiappam presser/ maker. Grease the Idli making tray and press the dough through the presser in a circular fashion into each of the idli making spaces.Noodle shaped dough will escape out of the holes in the base of the Idiappam presser/ maker. Sprinkle grated coconut on top. Steam just like idlis for 10-15 minutes.
