- 1 cup Nirapara Rice powder
- 1-1/2 cups Water
- 1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
- 1/4 cup Jaggery
- 1 tsp Cardamom Powder (Elaichi)
- 2 tbsp Nirapara Ghee
- 5 Banana leaf pieces
Keep a pan on the gas stove and bring water to boil.
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.
Next, mix grated coconut, grated jaggery and cardamom powder with your hands.
Take a piece of Banana leaf and place a lemon size dough in the centre of the leaf.
Flatten the rice dough with wet fingers to get a nice and even flattened dough. Fill the dough with 1tsp of coconut jaggery mixture on one side of the flattened dough and fold from the other side, and press lightly.
Place the Ela Ada in a steamer/idli cooker and steam it for 10 minutes on high heat and turn off the heat.
Once done, serve warm.
