    The recipe turned out really good! For the first time, I have seen a rice powder to water ratio work out so well.

    this is a very nice recipe.. it was easy for me to make for the first time.. it came out very well .. but it was difficult for me to squeeze out the dough from the iddiapam maker to the idli plate .. it was very hard… could any one please tell me how could that step be made easy… and i was not able to make all at the same time.. so when i make the second set of idiappams.. the dough seems to be dry .. how could i avoid this .. i will be please if anyone reply me with the answer for my doubts…
