Iddiyappam or 'Putu mayam' in Malay is a South Indian dish. It is popular in southern India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore. The process for making putu mayam (also known as string hoppers in English) consists of mixing rice flour or idiyappam flour with water and/or coconut milk. Putu piring is a Malaysian version of putu mayam in which the rice flour dough is used to form a small cake around a filling of coconut and gur or jaggery. In Malaysia and Singapore, putu mayam and its relatives are commonly sold as street food from market stalls or carts.

An interesting shot. It seems like a game. She suggests you to guess, under what of cups the ball lies. Excellent colours and details.
Have a good week!

Good evening Ally,
This culinary preparation appears very appetizing to me, and I would be curious to discover these new savors. I appreciate this skilful portrait carried out in a very natural way. The photograph is of excellent quality, under a soft light and with an excellent clearness. I like the ws and these drinks with the strange colors.
Have a good evening

interesting image, well done and informative. I liekd the positionement of the lady and the soft light and nice sharpness. I guess this is similar with a food of northeast of Brazil called tapioca, anyway ours is made with coconut and manioc floor.
