Adsara Undi

                            Adsara means tender coconut . This Adsara undi (steamed cake ) is made as a breakfast or snack ,this is usually accompanied with the very favourite of all GSB’s – Dalithoy. Any hummann or edigai too goes well with this.
  • Raw rice -1 and 1/2cups – soaked for at least 3-4 hours.
  • Boiled rice – 1/2 cup ( can skip this and use raw rice only )
  • Grated coconut – 1 cup tightly packed- must be  “torno” or jeevo narlu …can add more if you want .(Check Notes )
  • Jeera – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

Method ;

  1. Grind the soaked rice & coconut to a thick coarse paste adding as little water as possible. IMG_3083

                      Serve with a dish of your choice 
Note :-

  1.  you HAVE to use torno / jeevo narlu for this – whose flesh will be very soft – even better  is to use shiyale / tender coconut may use more coconut if you want than suggested – for cottony texture .IMG_3069
  2. For a sweet version of this . add sugar to the batter before steaming .
  3. If you prefer polos instead of undis – grind the batter to a smooth paste and use for making polos .
  4.  You can make the batter the previous evening & refrigerate to use the next day morning ..this gives very soft undis .
