Olaiappam - Sweet Idli

Olaiappam , sweet appam an authentic breakfast in TamilNadu...its a steamed version of appam..can be a snack also..Learned from my Mom, this is one of the traditional breakfast..this recipe was passed by my grandmom to my mother n from my mother to me...preparation of this idli ressembles as much as tamilian's daily breakfast idli, but we need to add sugar r else jaggery as by our preference.. lets go for the recipe..On the way to Rice & wheat sweets/Diabetic friendly sweets by Mythreyee of Paajaka..


1 cup Raw rice
1 cup Idli rice
1/2cup Urad dal
1 tsp Fenugreek seeds

Ingredients 2:
1 cup Sugar
1/2cup Moong dal
1/2cup Grated coconut
1tbsp Cardamom powder(optional)

Soak both rice n urad dal with fenugreek seeds separately atleast for 5 hrs.. drain it and grind the rice coarsely n urad dal to soft..mix both to form the thick batter(batter must be thick coz while steaming, we will add sugar so that batter may become watery, if its not thicker it might be very hard to steam cook them). Let the batter to ferment n double their volume else preheat ur oven to 350 F n put off, keep the batter in the oven for 6 hours.


Roast the moong dal until they turns brown. Add the cardamon powder (optional) , sugar to the batter n mix them well, now batter will be like Idli batter..Grease the idli plates n fill them with the batter, springle the moong dal n the grated coconut over them. Steam cook as idlies for 10 minutes, once done remove them from the plates.

Olaiappam is done..can eat without any side r else with chutney..olaiappams can be stored in fridge for 2 days, heat them in microwave before serves..
