Idiyappam Recipe -- Sevai Recipe -- How to make Idiyappam Recipe

Idiyappam or Sevai is a breakfast dish in South India mainly in the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. It is made with rice flour specially meant for it and a very healthy breakfast dish. It is steamed like idli and we can make variety of dishes with it. We can make lemon sevai, curd sevai, coconut sevai and also tomato sevai. 
Though I am Telugu person I like almost all Indian vegetarian dishes. I would like to try them and serve my family. I have learned this dish from a Tamil friend. She told me to get idiyappam flour from store, but I tried with plain rice flour. I do not find any difference between them. She said that they serve it with non-vegetarian dishes, but I am a vegetarian so served it with pickle and Majjiga Pulusu. We at our home prefer to have it during dinner.
