Sigappu Arisi Idiyappam:

String Hoppers/Home Made Noodles/Idiyappam/Sandhavai is a favourite of my son.He enjoys it so much with coconut milk .The way mom makes it traditionally is pretty lengthy but it yields the softest fluffy string hoppers.(Recipe here) .This instant recipe of making string hoppers is what my aunt and MIL taught me and it is a life saver during hustle bustle morning hours(Recipe Here). Today’s recipe is red rice idiyappam.Red rice is very rich in iron and the red colour is from the antioxidants present in it.This is said to be anti inflammatory and also helps in preventing cancer.Sorry for bad images.

My Observations:

Add water slowly . Be careful as you knead.

Adding more water and then adding flour to compensate it will make the string hoppers thick.

Make it when it is still hot. It will be easy to press in the string hopper maker.

The dough will be smooth and non sticky if kneaded to the right consistency.

Skip salt for babies below one year.

Always have a word with your doctor before introducing any new food to you baby.
