Gothumai Adai/Wheat Flour Adai/Sweet Adai

                                                                      I have not heard of this recipe before,until i saw it in chitra's food book.It was really interesting. There are two versions of this adai sweet as well as savoury. The savoury version recipe will follow soon!!!!It requires very few ingredients and quiet  simple and easy to make.It is healthy too!!!It is a treat to people who have a sweet tooth.When i say this i remember that my cousin brother used to have jaggery with curd rice when we were small.I am sure there are lot of people are like that!I too love a little bit of sweetness in food!!!Anyway coming to this sweet adai it is a good variation from the normal chapathis or phulkas we have(one more variety).It is a good after school snack for kids!!!The coconut pieces,cardamom powder and the ghee makes it really yummy!!!!

You will Need

  • One cup Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Jaggery powder
  • A pinch of Cardamom Powder
  • One and half cup Water
  • Ghee as required
  • Slivered Coconut pieces

How to

  • Heat the water and add powdered jaggery let it dissolve fully.filter for impurities.Reheat the jaggery water in a thick pan.Add cardamom powder and the slivered coconut pieces and slowly add the wheat flour and mix well.

  •  Mix until the dough becomes a thick mass.switch off the stove and allow the dough to cool.

  •  Rub your hands in oil,take a portion of the dough and roll it in to a ball.repeat with rest of the dough.

  •  Take a banana leaf or a ziploc bag spread some oil.take  dough and spread on it.

  •  Spread until you get a thin roti.

  • Heat a non stick pan and place the flattened roti and cook on both sides(until golden brown) drizzling some ghee.

It actually does not need any accompaniment.It tastes great when it is hot and tastes good in normal temperature too.
