Ottu shavige or akki shavige recipe explained with step by step pictures. Ottu shavige or rice noodles is prepared using rice, salt and water. Ottu shavige or akki shavige is a breakfast recipe and is popular by different names like semettu, shamige, shyavige, idiyappam and nool puttu. Ottu shavige is a very easy steamed rice noodles recipe.
In Karnataka, authentic ottu shavige or akki shavige is prepared by grinding the soaked rice. The rice batter is half cooked, dumplings are steamed and then finally pressed using the noodles mould (shavige mane). The ottu shavige recipe, which I have explained here is prepared using rice flour. Here the noodles ae prepared and then steamed. Actually this is how rice noodles are prepared in Indian state of Kerala and Tamil nadu. There they call it by name Idiyappam or Nool puttu. As I live in Kerala now, I learnt this recipe and I felt it is an easy way to prepare ottu shavige if prepared in small quantity.
If you do not get good quality rice flour or if you want to prepare in large quantity... I still feel, shavige by grinding soaked rice is the best method and I will share it soon. But that method needs the actual shavige mane or big noodles mould. But in this recipe I have used murukku mould or chakli acchu.
