Ragi idiyappam is a bit of a different take on traditional idiyappam, which is normally made out of rice flour and pressed into the form of noodles. Normal idiyappam is white in color like the rice flour it is made from. This ragi version of idiyappam’s coloring is brown, reflecting the natural coloring of ragi flour. Not only does it make the dish look more interesting on your plate, but it also tastes different than traditional idiyappam.
