Idiyappam

This is quiet a regular dish at many South Indian families but being born and brought up in Maharashtrian family I had never even heard of it. Yeah, when we think of South Indian food, all we know is idli, dosa , sambhar , medu vada as we get these as street food in Mumbai. So, I saw this dish on one of the cooking shows two- three years ago and it got stamped on my mind. I didn’t know when I would make it but I used to drool over the image I saw on TV many times. So finally, on one good morning I decided to make this, quiet an impulsive decision. Since, it does not require any fermentation or grinding, there was nothing to stop me today. Hahaha, jokes apart, I was happy that it really came out well in first attempt. (And I did hurt my fingers with that sharp edged ricing machine unknowingly, but that pain was nothing compared to the happiness I found in that first successful attempt.) Technically, this dish is super easy and after making it, I didn’t realize what was holding me back since so many years. I guess I never pushed myself enough to attempt it maybe because of the fear of failure. I guess I need to improve on that! Read More
