Notes

Ela ada's should be steamed in medium flame so that it is cooked properly. Amount of jaggery can be added according to your taste. Ghee added to the stuffing makes the dish more flavorful. Even the ghee added to dough makes the dough soft and will prevent from drying. You can use any vegetable steamer or a idli cooker to steam patholi's/ela ada.

  1. You have me floored dear Vani with this wonderful heirloom recipe. It’s such a delight to have three lovely ingredients, each prominent in terms of flavour being combined together. Oh every bite will be pure joy. The aroma from the mix topped up by the Bananna leaf is sure to make everyone around hungry. I am super impressed and throughly loved this dish.

  2. Lovely recipe Vani and so beautifully described too. We make similar way but the addition of mango to the filling is new.. Super recipe:)
