Wheat String Hoppers/Wheat Idiyappam

Post No. 116

Idiyappam or string Hoppers, a traditional recipe of south India is a healthy and delicious breakfast. There are many variations which you can try out. Today I am making a wheat idiyappam. Since they are steamed, it is easily digestable  and feels light on your stomach. You can serve hot with coconut chutney, stew , kurma , plain sugar or with coconut  milk. So do try out this version of idiyappam for your breakfast.


2cup wheat flour

1 ½ cup of Boiling water

Salt to taste

1 tsp oil


Steam the wheat flour for 10 minutes. Remove it and let it cool down. Transfer it into a bigger bowl and mix well to remove any lumps. Alternatively you can blend  in a mixer for a minute to remove the lumps.( Instead of steaming the wheat flour it can be dry roasted as well)

Add salt and oil to the boiled water.  Pour the water in small quantities and mix well using a spoon. When it is warm enough to handle knead into a smooth dough. ( the amount of water needed depends on the quality of the flour)

Grease the idiyappam mould and use the fine idiyappam press. Fill the idiyappam mould with dough and close it. Press the idiyappam dough evenly on a steamer plate or in an idli plate.

Steam it for about 5 minutes on medium flame.  Allow it to cool down and remove gently from the plate.

Your soft wheat idiyappam is ready now. Serve  hot with kurma or sugar and coconut milk.
