Ela Ada is one of my hubbies favourite evening snack,so when ever i get some banana leafs i make some ela ada for my hubby.It is a traditional kerala dish.The Banana leaf imparts a aromic flavor to the ada.


Ingredients

Salt, as required
1 1/2 cup water
3/4 cup grated coconut
1/4 - 1/2 cup Jaggery, powdered
1/2 tsp cardamom powder

2.Add rice flour to the boiling water and switch off the stove. Cover it and keep aside for 2 mins. Open the lid and knead the dough until smooth.
3.In a pan, heat little water and add jaggery to it.
4.When it is melted add coconut and mix with jaggery and cardamom powder and blend well and keep it aside.
6.Place one ball of rice dough on a piece of banana leaf.
7.Spread the dough with your wet fingers.You can dip your hand in water if the dough is sticky.
8.Keep the coconut filling on one side and fold over.

Wow, very new recipe for me. I can totally guess the taste as with the exact same ingredients we make modaks, but the banana leaf taste, must be different. Love to learn a new recipe.
