Recipe type: Traditional Breakfast
  • Roasted rice flour – 1 cup
  • Hot water – as required
  • Salt – a pinch

  • Grated coconut – 1 cup
  • Grated jaggery – ½ cup

  1. Mix rice flour, water and salt together and make soft dough similar to chapati dough. Take care not to make it watery.

  3. Take a piece of banana leaf and dab a little oil all over the upper side of the leaf. (this step is optional)

  5. Now take the coconut-jaggery filling and spread it over the rice layer.
  6. Fold the leaf and press it well in all sides so that the fillings don’t spill out.

  8. Your ela ada is ready.
  9. Remove the banana leaf and serve with a cup of warm milk.
