Coconut Sevai - Thengai Sevai Recipe | Easy Idiyappam Recipes

Coconut Sevai  Recipe
I make coconut sevai just like coconut rice....I love all sevai/ idiyappam varieties plain sevai, lemon sevaimasala idiyappam or coconut sevai I can have it anytime. Mittu loves idiyappam thenga paal or with jaggery(chimmi is how she calls jaggery).

Any steamed food is healthy and safe to eat especially for kids.Usually when we are travelling/holidaying either idli or idiyappam is our staple breakfast order for mittu as she eats it without any complaints.

My Notes:

  • Always while preparing dough for idiyappam make sure its not too tight or too loose to get the perfect soft idiyappam.Also cool down then seperate to get it easily separated.
  • While pressing don't layer too much that helps in even cooking. 
  • I usually use idiyappam press which has small holes but for sevai varieties I use the bigger hole just for a variation.
