- Water as required
- Grated coconut- 1 cup
- Grated jaggery/brown sugar - 1 cup
- Dry ginger powder - ¼ teaspoon
- Cardamom powder- ¼ teaspoon
- Salt to taste
- Oil – ¼ tsp per ada
Mix water, flour and salt to make the batter. It should be slightly thicker in consistency than the dosa batter.
In a separate container, mix the grated coconut, jaggery, cardamom and dry ginger powder. Keep it aside.
Heat a tawa and apply some oil on the tawa.
Pour 2-3 spoonfuls of batter on the tawa and spread it to make a dosa like circle. Wheat flour batter sticks to hot tawa so keep the flame low. It doesn’t spread out as easily as dosa batter, so use a spoon instead of a ladle and spread out slowly.
Spread the coconut and jaggery mix on the wheat dosa and fold it to half.
Turn both sides and let it cook for about 1 minute. While cooking, slowly press on both sides using a spoon.
Your Wheat Flour Ada is ready to be served with a hot cup of tea.
