As we all know Raagi is a highly nutritional food rich in fibre, proteins and minerals. It is  a great source to extract energy. It is said to be very good for diabetic patients too. Now coming back to the recipe, normally we all make idiappam with rice flour. But this time I tried making with raagi which made me felt so happy. Happy that I could incorporate healthy ingredients with one of our special dish. Make sure to roast raagi powder for few sec to that it does not become too sticky. Do try this healthy version guys and let me know :)


1 Cup Raagi powder.

2 tbsp Rice powder.

1 tsp Oil.

Water as needed.

Salt to taste.


Sieve the raagi powder. Heat a kadai and dry fry the powder for about 2 min.

In a bowl add the raagi flour, rice flour, oil and salt and mix. Meanwhile heat nearly 2 cups of water for boiling. Pour little by little into the mixing flour and knead into a soft dough. Cover and keep for around 10 min. Grease idly plates and  idiyapam maker.  Fill it with a portion of dough and Spin the string maker. Stack the plates and steam for about 7 to 8 min.

Remove them and serve hot with channa masala or Batate song or Stew.
