Wheat Idiyappam Recipe / Godhumai Idiyappam

Wheat Idiyappam Recipe

I wanted to try Wheat Idiyappam also called as Wheat String Hoppers since I saw the recipe in a supplementary cookbook.Last year during Diwali I saw this Pithalai(Brass) Idiyappam press at Kamala Stores but felt it was overpriced so I returned back home without buying it.But after a month or so I felt to own it and went in search of it but unfortunately all the pieces were sold out, the same thing repeated after 2months and I regretted again.Hubby was teasing me as usual, you always ask for things when its out of reach and neglect it when you see it...Sigghhh but yes thats a true story.To my surprise he gifted me this Brass Idiyappam Press along with few other brass utensils for our anniv :))

The moment I saw it, I wanted to try wheat idiyappam first and here is the recipe for it.This is sure a better alternate for chapathi.And steamed food is always healthy, So I am planning to make it often.
Wheat Idiyappam Recipe

This is my new Idiyappam / Murukku Press, screw type. I already have a wooden press and stainless steel one which amma gave me now this one is a new addi(c)tion.This is the first time I am using a screw type press and I find it very easy.

Wheat Idiyappam Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can see the texture difference and the color change, but don't let the color change to brown, then the idiyappam will have a bitter taste.
  • I used homemade wheat flour.
  • Don't over roast, if its over roasted then the idiyappam will taste bitter.Don't let the color change to dark brown, it should be slightly golden and the texture will be sandy, that's the perfect time to stop roasting.
  • You can separate the strings and even make savory idiyappam by making a simple tadka with oil,mustard seeds,curry leaves and onion.

  6. Hi Sharmi, I'm thinking of buying steel press,as I thought it will ease pressing and also takes more amount of flour than wooden one. but my MIL said, you have to grease it often , otherwise flour sticks to press. is it worth buying a steel one?

  12. I tried most of your recipes. everything was good.When I tried this Idiyappam first i was not able to press the dough.I added little water and started to press. then it became sticky.,The strings were sticky.
    HOw long the flour should be roasted ( for 10 mins)
