Ottada can be served during breakfast or at snack time. Ottada is a traditional food, ada wrapped in banana leaf roasted in 'cheena chatti'. The smell of roasted banana leaf takes me back to my childhood days.

  • Roasted rice flour  - 2 cups
  • Grated coconut - 1cup 
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Water  - As required to make dough
  • Banana Leaves

  • Mix the Grated Coconut and sugar for filling.
  • Add Water and Salt to rice flour and make a dough like chappathi dough.
  • Make the dough into small balls.
  • Flatten the dough on a rectangular banana leaf using finger tips and little water. 
  • Put a some coconut mix and spread it in one half of the ada.
  • Fold the banana leaf in half. 
  • Heat a Pan / Thava / Chatti.
  • Put each ada in it and sprinkle some water.
  • Cover it with a pan and cook in medium heat.
  • Roast the ottada on both sides till the banana leaf turns brown and the ada detaches from the leaf.
