  • If you are buying store bought rice flour make sure to buy idiyappam flour.I use nirapara brand.
  • Do not make a stiff dough it will break while shaping.At the same time the dough should not be too loose too.It should be soft and slightly sticky thats the perfect consistency.
  • If you have added little more water by mistake roast some flour and sprinkle and knead it.
