    Dear Rashmi,1.u can make with regular mould with small holes.use fine sev mould.2.When it's cooked it will not stick.right consistency.3.u can make it spicy with various types like by seasoning with mustard seeds,chilli and squeeze lemon or coconut,can make with tamarind spicy or with grounded sesame with red chilli but idiyappam is taken plain in ceylon and in tamilnadu.its good for heart patients.u can see my coconut sevai and puliyogare sevai,different method..4.u can try with MTR rice noodles or concord but they r not as fresh as home made idiyappam or sevai.
