  2. That is so wonderful to hear that the Idiyappam/String hoppers are cholesterol free. I am trying to convert myself to more healthy eating and I think seafood is the route to go. Unfortunately, I cannot break the late night snacking habit. If I made some of this Idiyappam and saved it for later, I would totally snack on it.

  3. It looks awesome….lovely
