Ottu Shavige | Idiyappam

Ottu Shavige or Idiyappam is a traditional breakfast/tiffin recipe from the states of  Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala.  This is basically a simple steamed rice noodles and best eaten with any gravy. Today I made Salna for this recipe. Idiyappam/Ottu Shavige recipe also made of Ragi flour(Finger Millet Flour). 

Ottu Shavige / Idiyappam makes chakli presser using thenkol (small) hole plate. For steaming I have used idli stand or banana leaves or tatte idli stand or bamboo plates. Enjoy the delicious meal.
