Beetroot Idiyappam Recipe-This is great option for breakfast and dinner. Since it is steamed and rice-based it can be cooked for babies above 6 months to elders around 80 years. Idiyappam at home follows a traditional method and I have posted it already here. It is a tedious method and I have not seen the recipe with many. As my son loves colours, I just gave a quick thought to make beetroot idiyappam today.

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 the salt for babies below one year.

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