Those steamed string hoppers (thin rice flour noodle 'nests') are called Putu Mayam...the other two I have no idea what they are called.

i still find them too sweet.

Hi, I love indian/punjabi sweets too ^_^
The white dumpling pastry - Kollukatai and you should try 'Pytho-ura-da' too (small shaped-ball mungbean mix with spices and fried) - but it is hard to find shops selling this nowadays : (

Hi..me again, forgotten to tell you a particular sweet shop at Klang - called Chennai - imported sweet from India - a bit pricey (for a ladoo - RM1.80) but lovely : )
Go straight after passing Asoka and turn to your right into a lane and you will see the shop on your middle left..how I miss the sweet there !!

Christine

The white string nest - is called "idayapam" by indian but for others they normally named it as 'Putu Mayam' - which is not correct according to my indian fren : )

Christine

Sorry : P me again - wrong spelling - "Idiyappam"

Those half-moon shaped dumplings with the coconut filling are called somashi in Tamil, although the way my mom makes them they're more tan-colored -- maybe because she deep-fries them!
