Karthigai vella adai – Jaggery-based adai recipe made for Karthigai deepam festival – Vella adai recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

I have posted many recipes for Karthigai deepam festival. Traditionally pori urundai, appam, milagu adai is made for Karthigai deepam. Vella adai is made with rice, toor dal, channa dal and jaggery as the main ingredients.

You can soak in more quantity for both milagu adai and vella adai and in the last divide the batter and add jaggery to vella adai and pepper to the milagu adai. These adais turned out so well and the sweet was just perfect for the taste buds.

We are not going to ferment the adai batter. So you can make the vella adai, immediately after making the batter.

Notes

1. I added 1/4 cup of jaggery first and felt it is very less and added 2 tblsp extra.
2. Instead of grated coconut you can add finely chopped coconut. This will enhance the taste.
