Ragi ila ada | finger millet in banana leaf – Kids Breakfast Menu Day 4 | Spicy Kitchen


    Healthy and delicious dish served as snack or breakfast

    Ragi ila ada! 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 steam the ada in a cooker or pan cook ada.

    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 delicious and healthy ragi ila ada. Please try it out and let me know how it turned out for you.
