Ragi ila ada ( Millet in Banana Leaf)
Healthy and delicious dish served as snack or breakfast
This is fourth day of my kids breakfast menu recipe. Today I would like to share Kerala style ragi ada recipe. Ada is the famous traditional breakfast/snack item of Kerala. We used to prepare ada in banana leaf. Rice flour will be the base and coconut and jaggery mix is the filling. It is such a wonderful yummy dish. We can steam cook or pan cook ada. In this recipe I used ragi flour to make ada. As you all know ragi is full of calcium and is very good for growing kids. I have already posted Ragi kozhukkatta with step by step photos recipe before. This kozhukkatta preparation is same as ada, only the difference is we are making this in a banana leaf. If you don’t have banana leaf you can also prepare this way. But nothing beats ila ada. Hope you all will like this recipe.
