Ragi idiyappam recipe, soft and healthy idiyappam using fingermillet flour.
Take ragi flour in a pan and start roasting, roast for 5 mins in low flame.Add required salt and keep it ready.
Boil water till it starts boiling rigorously, now add it to little by little to the roasted flour.
Mix with a laddle then add more water and keep mixing till it gathers together like this.
Now bring together to form a soft dough.Take your idiyappam press and grease it well with oil.I used the fine idiyappam press mould.
Shape the dough like a cylinder then fill it in the idiyappam press.Grease the idli plate with a drop of oil.
Press it in circular motion to fill the plate.Repeat this in batches…Don’t crowd .I used my idli plates for steaming as I wanted small individual portions.You can use the steamer plate too.
In the idli steamer pour water and place the idli steamer plate above it and steam it for 10-12mins.Serve hot with coconut chutney or with sugar.
