Idiyappam Kurma | Kuruma for Idiyappam | Side dish for Idiyappam

Idiyappam Kurma

Idiyappam Kurma is a special side dish, which you can prepare for the Idiyappam. In most South Indian hotels, you can see, this kurma being served as accompaniment to the idiyappams along with the sweetened coconut milk. I always wanted to prepare this kurma at home, but my kids and my hubby always ask for coconut milk and I end up preparing coconut milk only. So last saturday, I prepared this finally with less spicy and my son loved the taste very much, and asked to prepare this Idiyappam kurma in coming days along with the coconut milk. You can also have this kuruma for Aappams as well.

I love such a dish - just so perfect for rice and tosai as well. Coconut milk I don't shun away for the nice creamy taste.
