Idyapams are made from rice flour. It is roasted, mixed with salt and water to form a slightly wet dough and made into idiyapam shapes and steamed.
I have been eating this dish since I was very small. Most of my friends in school know this dish too! It's that popular! hahaha
 I love this recipe not only because it is so easy to make, but also because its a lovely way to use leftover idyapams. If you have idyapams in the fridge dinner is done in a flash!

The best combination for this dish is lime pickle! Absolutely delish!

idiyapams (string hoppers) - 10
onion, chopped finely - 1 big
green chillies. slit - 5
ginger, grated (optional)- 1/2 tbsp
eggs - 5
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
coriander leaves, chopped(optional)-  1 tbsp

  • Tear the idiyapam into tiny bits and keep aside.
  • in a bowl, crack the eggs. add salt and turmeric and whisk. keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add the onions and chilies and fry till slightly brown.
  • add the ginger if using.
  • Add the eggs. cook like how you would do scrambled eggs,
  • once they have cooked, add the coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
  • Add the idiyapam and nicely stir till the idyappams and the egg mixture come together.

  • You could also add some cashews fried in ghee to give it a rich taste.

  1. that is an innovative way....yummy..

    BTW, the tastier version in some cakes like butter cake, sponge cake is maida only, but i can tell u in some cakes like the fruits added cake, like apple cake, banana bread, i feel the wheat flour goes really well with it than maida and the cakes are really soft n moist. Rarely only i use maida in my cooking, wherever the plain flour is said i will try replacing it with wheat flour, i have never failed by using wheat flour.
