Food Friday : Putu Mayam, Iddiyappam, (String Hoppers)

Yum, yum, yum.
It is Friday again, and all I can think of is FOOD.

One of my favourite breakfast hangout is place like this, a stall, roadside, sometimes with or without cement flooring, a few tables in the open, little kitties roaming around and can be quite hygienically challenged. Not for the poor in the stomach...


Putu Mayam, or "string hoppers" one of my favourite breakfast item.



In Malay, it is called Putu Mayam.
In Tamil, "Iddiyappam"


Putu Mayam is a South Indian dish, made of rice flour, water with or without coconut milk, squeeze through a special dough into sheets and then steamed.

It looks like 'noodle', commonly served with local brown sugar (gula melaka) and grated coconut.
The combination, sweet, rich, a little salty makes the taste buds go YAHOO!

I'll bet it's yummy and much healthier than all our gluten-filled products here. :-)
