I served this idiyappam with mixed veg kurma. You can also serve this with some non veg sidedishes like aatu kaal paya (Lamb Leg gravy), chicken or mutton curry, egg masala. In some parts they have it with cardamom flavored coconut milk or with Jaggery syrup and grated coconut on top. You can also have this with coconut chutney. My mom used to serve it with sugar and grated coconut for breakfast. We will enjoy this recipe during our childhood days. We used to absolutely love it. It was so soft and literally melted in my mouth.
