Gothumai Idiyappam | Wheat Flour Idiyappam | Breakfast/Dinner Recipes

Godhumai Idiyappam/ Wheat flour idiyappam, one of my favorite breakfast/dinner item.As you have read my blog before, you know how much i love idiyappam. Atleast once in a week ,i make rice flour idiyappam. For a change, sometimes i make this gothumai idiyappam. 
When i first tried this idiyappam, it was a total disaster, don't know what went wrong, but the end result was very hard and everything was ended in trash. Later i knew, to make soft idiyappam from wheat flour, roasting the flour is very important.So while you're making this idiyappam, try roast the flour well , until nice aroma/ nutty flavor comes from the flour. For 11/2 cup of flour, it takes around 10 mins on medium flame. 
This idiyappam taste great with coconut & sugar. But my hubby doesn't like to have anything with sugar, for his sake, i make sambar to paired with. Either way it tastes delicious.Give it a try you will know.

  • Depends on flour quality, water quantity may varies.So start with 3/4 cup of water and increase if needed.
  • While roasting the flour, you may see brown strikes of flour at the bottom, so if you leave unattended for a min, there is a chance of burning the flour at the bottom. 
  • Continuously roast the flour in medium flame for minimum 8 mins.
  • Taste good & soft even after hours.
