Idiyappam is a much-loved breakfast item that is easy to prepare and tastes amazing with vegetarian and non-veg curries. However, many complain that mixing the dough to the right consistency is quite a task.

Even though idiyappam is usually prepared using rice flour, recipes of wheat flour idiyappam too are available online. But, the current trend is the soft and tasty idiyappam made with maize flour. Here is how to make it at home.
