Kothu idiyappam or masala idiyappam can be made with homemade soft idiyappam or even the readymade sevai available in stores. I made this for the first time after tasting it in the restaurant Saisangeet. I always have wondered and wish why there is no such restaurants which serve healthy dishes or millet dishes. And though this restaurant not serves only those items, but also has other yummy regular menu, in addition to rare items made with millets and some other authentic dishes. I have already mentioned about this in my thalippu idli post. Though I could not achieve the exact taste, I ended up in a delicious idiyappam variety. I made with tomato, and I guess without tomato also this comes out really good, similar to what I tasted in the restaurant.
Serve hot. This tastes great as such, but if you want you can serve with coconut chutney.
