Ari Illa Adda

I remember my amma inviting my brother and me from a long day at school with hot hot simmering Illa Adda

I tried to prepare couple of it with different dough……..

First let me post the Ari (Rice) Illa (banana leaf) Adda

First let us see the stuffing that goes into the adda:

To the grated coconut, add 1-2 tsp of sugar (according to your taste). Then add some powdered cloves to it and mix thoroughly. Instead of sugar, one can add grated jaggerry too.

How to prepare Ari Adda:

Boil some water, add some salt and pour it on the rice powder and mix it thoroughly so that it becomes a dough just like one prepare for chappathi. One can also add some jeeram seeds while doing the dough.

Take a ball of dough(tennis ball), and press it smoothly on a small piece of banana leaf ( 10 * 10 cm) to make it a layer covering the whole of the leaf.

Then spread the stuffing over this rice dough layer and fold the whole layer by half like a notebook fold.

Keep inside iddili cooker or the normal pressure cooker without whistle.
Allow it to cook for 10-15 mintues.
