Vellam Idiyappam / Jaggery String Hoppers Recipe

Idiyappam is an easy to make healthy breakfast made using rice flour.It is mostly served with coconut milk and sugar.I have already shared KARUPATTI IDIYAPPAM which is sweetened with palm sugar syrup ,thus making it more healthy.I would like to share another healthy sweet version of idiyappam made from vellam (jaggery).
The dough is prepared by mixing hot jaggery syrup with the rice flour,the dough has to be soft and hot to squeeze it out easily through the idiyappam maker.You can have this vellam idiyappam without any side dish.



MAKES : 8-10*


1 cup idiyappam flour

250 g jaggery

1 cup water


Take the jaggery and break them into small pieces.Boil the jaggery with water and simmer in lower flame for 5 mins to obtain thick jaggery syrup.Then filter the syrup in stainless steel filter and discard the residue.

In a large mixing bowl add rice flour,jaggery syrup and mix well to make a soft dough(you may not need the entire jaggery syrup)

Fill the idiyappam maker with the prepared dough.Now press the maker to squeeze out the dough in a circular pattern to produce long string like structures.

Steam the idiyappams for 7-10 mins.Jaggery Idiyappam is ready to serve now.


Alter the amount of jaggery according to your preference.

Prepare the dough with hot jaggery syrup else it would be very difficult to press the Idiyappam maker to squeeze out the dough Let the dough be soft to get long strings like structures.
