  • For the outer covering:- 1)Soak equal amounts of raw rice and boiled rice for 2 - 3 hrs.
  • 2)Grind them fine adding salt and jaggery.
  • :- The consistency should be slightly (only) thinner than dosa batter.
  • For the filling:- 1)If you are using fresh fruit, mince it fine, cook for a while and add jaggery and grated coconut.
  • 2)You should get the dough like consistency.
  • 3)If you are using chakka varatti , first mix grated coconut with powdered jaggery(this will be real sweet) and put it on fire and stir to make the filling.

    Comment list

    There is no way that a batter thinner than that of dosa consistency can be spread on a plantain leaf! It will ooze outta the leaf and mess up the whole place. The outer cover for the ada should be a soft dough made outta fine rice powder. Mix the rice powder with boiling salt water and prepare a soft dough. This should be spread on the leaf to make the outer cover for the ada. The rest of the recipe looks ok.
