Idiyappam is a famous breakfast in Kerala as well as Tamilnadu..Donno who invented it..To my knowledge puttu and idiayappam are from 'Gods own Country' Kerala. Kerala is a greenish place with trees and sea surrounding them. I have been all parts of Kerala. My favourites are Trivendrum Beach and Allepey Back waters..When I was in Coimbatore, we spend most of the vacation in kerala..I love their puttu, Idiyappam and big rice (donno the name). Idiyappam and coconut milk is lovely combo..u can just keep eating U never know how many idiyappam u had!!!
Likewise in tamilndu, Idiyappam and Paya (attukal kozhumbu) is a famous breakfast. When u add the spicy paya to the soft idiyappam..it just melts away in ur mouth..wooow what an amazing taste...mouth watering even to think about it...
