Ila Ada- rice cake with coconut and jaggery filling

Ila ada is a very tasty and delicious sweet snack of Kerala. It is made using rice flour with a sweet filling of coconut and jaggery. It is traditionally made steaming in a banana leaf. It gives its unique taste when the essence from the banana leaf is left on the sweet.

But not having a banana leaf handy should not stop you from making this delicious snack. This recipe shows you how to make the exact same thing using a baking paper and still enjoy this amazing dish.

It does become a version of vella (jaggery) kozhukattai made during festivals like Vinayaka chaturthi.
