Kozhi Ada

kozhi ada

So the first week of Ramadan is over.I hope all our prayers and fast be accepted in this Holy month.This is my first post of the month and first post during this Ramadan too. I am really happy to hear that my previous recipe post 30+ Ramadan Recipe Round up , was really helpful to you all. And the day I published this recipe round up was the best day of my blog as it reached the maximum number of views in a single day. That was really inspiring and encouraging..kozhi ada


Now here is another Iftar recipe which is a typical Malabari snack- KOZHI ADA..I love to eat kozhi ada from my favorite bakeries back in Kerala. But that is another kind of Kozhi ada with a dry filling. This recipe is not that dry like what you get from the bakery.This is the homemade version of Kozhi ada with a soft chicken filling inside and that too a different kind of filling from the usual one. This ramadan so far whatever snacks I prepared for Iftar, almost all the recipes are there already in the blog.So this is the first item from this Ramadan that is making it to the blog.kozhi ada

  3. Once the chicken is ready , add cilantro leaves and switch off the flame.Kozhi ada-Iftar snack

Now let’s make the dough for the snack.

  1. Knead all the above mentioned ingredients into a soft dough and keep it for 10-15 minutes wrapped inside a cling wrap or something.
  2. Now, from the dough make small lemon sized balls and roll it.Kozhi ada- Ifthar snacks
  3. Now place the chicken filling inside the roti and wrap it like shown in the image and seal the edges in any pattern as per your wish.Kozhi ada-malabari  Ifthar snack
  4. Once the filling and sealing gets over, let’s heat the oil .I used a small kind of wok. You can use any kind of vessel as per convenience.
  5. Once the oil is hot, deep fry the ada and keep it over tissue paper to remove access oil from it.Kozhi ada- Ifthar snacks

So Kozhi Ada is ready..Serve it hot along with any kind of sauce or ketchup.kozhi ada
