  29. Nice recipe...May I know how to separate steamed idiyappam? I find it very difficult to separate it.Please advice me on that.

  30. Shruthi- It means you are adding too much water while preparing idiyappam, that is the reason it is sticking to each other. Try reducing the quantity of water next time while preparing idiyappam
