Idiyappam Sodhi Recipe

chettinad style idiyappam sodhi
Idiyappam or string hoppers is a dish my mom often makes it at home as we are love to eat a lot. I would soon post the recipe for string hoppers served with thick coconut milk and topped with fresh grated coconut and sugar. This recipe Sodhi is a savoury thick delicious coconut milk served with the sweet version in my place. It is considered to be light on stomach and easy to digest making it an dish for the sick time instead of bread and milk. 
Sodhi is famous in Tirunelveli side and the recipe differs to that we make it in my place karaikudi. This is a simple and quick version which goes well with idiyappam. Do try and share your feedback.
