  • 1/4 cup Jaggery
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder (Elaichi)
  • 2 tbsp Nirapara Ghee

    Method Of Preparation

  • Step 1

    Keep a pan on the gas stove and bring water to boil.

  • Step 2

    Add boiling water, gradually, to the rice powder and mix using a wooden spatula/spoon. Once the mixture cools down a bit, knead with your hands to make a soft dough and keep aside.

  • Step 6

    Place the Ela Ada in a steamer/idli cooker and steam it for 10 minutes on high heat and turn off the heat.

  • Step 7

    Once done, serve warm.

We begin our day with breakfast. So, the breakfast we eat should be healthy. I tried making Ragi puttu and it turned out all tasty. What a great way to start a day! Thankyou Nirapara for always making our life better and healthier! blanditiis fugit obcaecati quas aperiam quisquam soluta nesciunt porro saepe?
