RAGI ELA ADA ( MILLET ADA IN BANANA LEAF)

RAGI ELA ADA



These evening snacks or breakfast is very healthy and mostly kids favourites. The sweet stuffings on the inside makes it even more tastier. Like in Kerala, we dont get to pluck banana leafs here. We have to pay to get them in bunch of 6 or 7. So I dont make these frequently as I dont have any clue what to do with the excess banana leaves.

Today I was no mood to cook, though i had to do for the dinner. My little one is so irritated today that for each and everything she keeps crying. One way or other I got her to sleep. So, while I was surfing through my cookery pics I noticed I havent uploaded this for a long while. So here goes the recipe..

Ingredients :

Ragi Flour -  1 cup
Rice Flour - 1/4 cup
Water
Salt

For the Filling:
Ripe Plantain : - 1 nos chopped in cubes
Coconut grated - 1/2 cup
Poha/Beaten Rice - 1/2 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1-2 tbsp (as per ur taste)

For Wrapping - banana leaf


Prepapration:

Wash and cut about more than 1/4 of the total leaf and keep aside

Mix all the ingredients for the filling and keep aside.

Mix all the flour with water and salt to make dough. Now take a small ball size from the dough and spread onto the banana leaf as shown in the pic (the pic shows for the ada made with rice flour) Dip fingers in water and spread the dough if its sticky.

Add in the filling ingredients of about a 2 tbsp or so and fold the leaf in half. Make like these more and steam them in idli steamer or any steaming utensil for about 15 mins. When warm, unfold and serve.



The above pic is made with rice flour and details are given below. In here, the filling comprises of just coconut, cardamom powder and sugar.


Note:
You can do this same with the Rice flour. For that you have to add boiling water to the dough and mix and the rest procedure is the same as for the ragi ela ada.

Fillings can be changed according to your needs and taste. Jaggery is very common filling in this. Since it was out of stock, I didnt add.

Cheers,
Neetz ;)
