Vegetable stew for idiyappam.

I always wanted to have this when I saw them in menu cards in the Indian restaurants. But my hubby used to dismiss the dish saying that I won’t like it. So this way I had never tasted until my last trip to chennai when my sister in law ordered it for a breakfast. And I simply loved it. Since then I always wanted to try this combination at home. But I never managed to buy the press for idiyappam. But finally , I found a instant idiyappam packet at the Indian stores and bought it immediately.

So I made this combination for a sunday brunch. We all loved it. It was delicious and quite filling too.

The idiyappam had to be kept in a bowl containing boiling water(salt added) and closed with a lid for few minutes. The water has to be drained. And the idiyappam is ready.

For the vegetable stew-
