Stuffed Wheat pancakes / Gothambu Ada

Mom used to serve the hot steaming adas as we (me and my bros) get back home from school. This used to be one of our favorite breakfast/snack item. My Mom makes this often and now I miss this a lot. This is a traditional and popular snack of Kerala. This is usually made with dough made of rice flour, stuffed with coconut and jaggery mixture and steaming them in banana leaf, as it gives a special and unique flavor to the dish.

Being the lazy person I am, I think that making with rice flour is a long process so I made this with wheat flour and roasted them on tawa just like how we make chapatis. This is a perfect dish for iftar as we will be full after eating two adas.

The stuffings can be varied according to one's taste and preference. So, here is the recipe. I hope you will try this mouth watering, easy dish.


  1. Wheat flour- 1 cup
  2. Salt- as required
  3. water- as required to knead
  4. Coconut (scraped)- ½ Cup
  5. Jaggery (grated)- ½ cup
  1. Mix the grated jaggery and coconut and keep it aside.
  2. Mix wheat flour, salt and water and make a dough. Make lemon sized balls out of the dough.
  3. Roll the lemon sized balls in the form of chapati and spread the coconut- jaggery mixture in this and fold the chapati ada into half and seal the edges by making design or with a fork.
  4. Heat a dosa pan and add little oil. Place this ada in the pan and let it roast well on both sides.
  5. Yummy and delicious ada is ready.
