idiappam-kurma


As i mentioned in my idiyappam recipe post , usually we make varieties of idiyappam when we have guests. Recently I tasted idiyappam in some restaurants.I loved the way it was served with sweetened coconut milk and mixed vegetable kurma.So i too started making the same way for my guests. When i make idiyappam for breakfast , i make this kurma and sweetened coconut milk as accompaniments as it is heavy and takes more time to digest..But If i make idiyappam for dinner , i prepare some varieties like lemon , puli or paruppu idiyappam which are easily digestible.I got this kurma recipe from Mrs.Mallika badrinath’s cookbook. I have tried this several times.It comes out very well.We love this kurma a lot.Do try this for idiyappam , u’ll love it for sure. I think it tastes good for rotis as well. But i have not tried it personally.Here is the link for mixed vegetable kurma i make for roti. Check if interested !

  14. Really yummy recipe. I did as per the recipe with just the change of milk. I used coconut milk instead of normal milk to get the consistency. Had a milk sweet and spicy/hot flavor at the same time. :) enjoyed both your idiyappam recipe and this one. Thank you :)
