I had a surprise breakfast a few months back. My wife S had hinted that I was going to go ga-ga with the breakfast that our new cook P had made. And indeed so. Made out of rice flour and passed through a sieve, these aappams come out in thin streaks like noodles. Steamed in a pressure cooker and served and taken with stew (or kurma) they taste delicious. It is a traditional Tamil, Keralite and Sri Lankan breakfast food. Separate Idyappam makers are available in the market. The ingredients are few. Raw rice, boiled rice, oil, scraped coconut and salt to taste. I recommend it highly as a nutritious and filling breakfast.
