well, idiyappam is quite a popular breakfast meal in south india, but each state has its own way of preparing this recipe. for instance, from my state of karnataka we call this recipe as akki shavige and the recipe steps vary from this recipe. even though the ingredients are the same, it is handled differently. in this recipe, the rice flour mixed with hot water and shaped to noodles it. later these noodles are steam cooked before it is served. whereas in karnataka, the flour is mixed with hot water to form a dough. this dough is steam cooked and later steamed dough is shaped into noodles. it is a subtle difference, but makes a huge difference with the outcome. basically, the idiyappam is very easy to make as you do not have to deal with hot dough, but with shavige way the noodles are non-sticky and separated. each way has its own pro and con but i guess the kerala way is much easier and hence widely practised.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the string hopper recipe. firstly, the traditional way to prepare this recipe is to soak the rice and ground to smooth paste-like any idli or appam recipe. using rice is the hack or instant quick version but you may not be able to get the same texture and authentic taste. secondly, with rice flour, use fresh and good quality rice flour for the best result. if you are confused check with the grocery owner before buying it. also, i would heavily recommend roasting the flour before using it. lastly, the best tip is to press the noodles when the dough is still warm. moreover, it is best recommended to use warm water to mix the flour and start pressing it while it is warm. if it cools down, the noodles may split and may not form long noodles.
