Makes: 8

You will need

1 cup (200 g) red rice flour
1 cup (200 ml) water
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a bowl, boil water with salt and ghee / oil. When the water starts boiling add red rice flour and mix well (until rice flour well mixed with water and softens). Keep aside for cooling for 10 minutes.

Knead again to a soft dough. Divide it into lemon sized balls.

Lightly grease the idiyappam mould and put 2 lemon sized portions of the rice dough.

Press/ extrude out the dough (resembling the noodles ) - while moving the mould in a small circle to form a small mount of noodles - onto each of the greased idiyappam stand / idli steamer and sprinkle grated coconut ( optional ).
