How to make ada in banana leaf for ada pradhaman
Ada prathaman is one of my favourite onam sadhya recipes so this year wanted to give a try at home. I am so happy to welcome each festival well in advance for blogs sake and learning new recipes that I have never thought I would. I first mailed Bharathy asking about how difficult it is to make ada at home....Because usually the first time I try any new dish I somehow feel to try it from the scratch...and may be after that I take the short route ;) Thanks so much Bharathy for all the tips you gave and for also motivating me to go ahead with home made ada.

I tried making this ada last week but cudnt make ada pradhaman with it the same day and click it so ended up making milk payasam with it :) So made ada pradhaman 2 days later with readymade store bought ada. Though the store bought ones equally serves the purpose I felt the homemade ones are best!

  2. The batter should resemble dosa batter so while adding water be very careful. Now spread a thin layer of the batter on the banana leaf. You can slightly saute the banana leaf in fire to make it stiff, I didnt do this but it was all fine.

  3. Roll it tight and carefully and tie with the string and steam cook it for 10-12mins like we do for kozhukattais.

  4. The water droplets on the banana leaf and the tenderness of it will make sure that the ada is cooked well.Carefully open it, sprinkle cold water if its sticky.
