PAN PATHALI

This recipe was specially suggested by my fatherinlaw, to put it on my blog. He is very fond of sweets and he himself thaught me how to prepare this delicious treat. The preparation snaps shown below was made by him. I know what you guys would think right now. Yes, I proudly say I am lucky to have such a wonderful and caring inlaws. Coming back to recipe-
Pan pathali (Pan- Banana leaf , and Pathali - Thin) is another popular dish under konkani's cuisine. This is usually served on special occation or festivals. In kerala its known as 'ADA'. These are sweet wrappes, prepared with the riceflour dough spread on the banana leaf and is stuffed with the sweet mixture of coconut jaggery filling or chakka varatti ( jackfruit filling). Here we have filled with coconut jaggery along with beaten rice mixture. The banana leaf is then folded into half that finally goes into a steamer for about 10 to 15 min. It tastes heavenly.


INGREDIENTS FOR DOUGH.

2 Cups Rice flour.

1/2 Cup Maida.

Salt to taste.

Warm Water as per needed.

INGREDIENTS FOR FILLING.

3/4 Cup Jaggery.

1 Cup Grated Coconut.

1 Cup Beaten rice.

Pinch of Cardamom.

METHOD.

Mix rice flour, maida and salt in a wide vessel. Pour in some warm water to make a smooth dough. Keep it aside. Meanwhile clean the banana leaf too.

In another pan, mix coconut grated , jaggery and beaten rice along with a pinch of cardamom powder.


Keep the steamer ready. Make a small balls of a dough just like chappati and spread them on the leaf till it forms thin layer as much as possible.

Fill the stuffing in the middle and fold them in half. Repeat the same process with the rest.

Place each ada's on the steamer and cook for about 10 min.

When its done, unfold the leaf and serve it warm.


Enjoy!!
