Ottada


Ingredients:

  • Rice flour 1 cup
  • Grated coconut 1 cup
  • Grated jaggery 1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Water
  • Banana leaf

Combine grated coconut and jaggery using hand and keep it aside. Mix rice flour and salt and pour required amount of boiling water into it and mix well using a spoon. After cooling down, knead it into a soft dough (like idiyappam). Take one rectangular shaped banana leaf and flatten a small portion of the dough thinly into it. Then fill 1/2 portion of the dough with the coconut mixture and fold it with the other part. This is called ada. Heat a shallow clay pot (chatti) or a thick bottom vessel well and put the ada into it. Then put any weight (another plate or chatti) on the top of this. Reduce the heat and cook it for few mins and remove the plate from the top of the ada. When the banana leaf starts to dry and the side portion of the ada turns light brown flip it and cook it well (this time, there is no need to put weight on top).
