Pazham nurukku & Rice Ada

Rice ada and pazham nuruku is mainly taken as breakfast on the Onam morning in malabar region. Pappadam is also taken along with these which gives a salty taste to the breakfast.

Preparation of pazhamnurukku
Cut 2 banana (nentra pazham) to pieces and boil it with 3 pieces of jaggery. This is for giving more sweet taste.

Rice Ada (Pancake)

It is a special breakfast for Onam. Normally rice ada is made using banana leaf. But as it is difficult to get banana leaf so I have used flat surface without using leaf or any paper. This one is a good tea time snacks also.

Fine rice powder – 1cup
Grated coconut – ½ cup
Melted Jaggery (Sharkkara) – 3-4tsp
Cardamom Powder – ¼ tsp
Dry ginger (Chukku Podi) powder – ¼ tsp
Salt – as rqd
Oil – 1tsp
Hot Water for making dough

How to prepare
