Thiruvathirai adai recipe. An adai made with jaggery and rice flour is served as a special neivedhyam dish along with thiruvathirai kali for thiruvathirai festival.
For the past three years, I have been trying to post thiruvathirai recipes – kootu, adai and kali. For some reason, it never happened. This year, I was so determined to post all the recipes that are made for thiruvathirai pooja. I had already posted thiruvathirai kootu, and now am happy to post thiruvathirai adai.
Here is my thiruvathirai wishes to you and your family. Enjoy!
Preparation time. 10 minutes
Cook time. 20 minutes
Recipe cuisine. south indian
Recipe category. sweet
Serves. 5 adais
1. In a pan, add water and jaggery and bring it to boil. We need water just to dissolve the jaggery. The jaggery should dissolve completely. Set aside.
2. Strain the jaggery to remove impurities. Transfer the jaggery to pan, and add rice flour.3. Stir continuously to avoid lumps. Add cardamom powder and grated coconut. Stir well to form a smooth and non-sticky dough. Switch off.4. Transfer the dough to a bowl and knead well. If you wish, you could add a teaspoon of oil or ghee. Divide the dough into 4 or 5 equal sized balls. Grease a polythene base (I used ziplock bag) or banana leaf using a teaspoon of ghee or oil. Then flatten the dough gently using your finger tips to 1/4 inch thickness. Repeat the same for the remaining balls.5. In medium or medium high flame, heat the dosa pan. Toast the adai by drizzling a drop of ghee or oil on the corners of the adai. Once adai turns golden brown on one side, flip it over and cook the other side until golden brown. Now, thiruvathirai adai is ready! Serve it with kootu or kali.
- You can use freshly ground rice flour, but I have used store bought rice flour.
