  • Make idiyappam and loosen it lightly using a fork or ur hands.Add this lemon juice along with seasoning. As soon as u add the juice , idiyappam will be wet and it will get separated by itself. So just mix using a ladle. Add  a tbsp of gingely oil .mix well .Initially it tastes little tangy but the idiyappam will absorb and tastes even while u eat. so always prepare 30 minutes in advance..
