This is a breakfast dish of Malabar region. Nowadays it is not a common dish. It is made in a special earthen tawa. Are you tired of making the same dishes every day? Try the below recipe.
  1. Raw rice (pachari): 1 cup
  2. Egg: 1                       
  3. Coconut grated: 3 tbsp
  4. Salt: needed
Method of Preparation:
  • Soak rice for 6 hours.
  • Wash and grind together with coconut and egg. Add salt.
  • The batter should be thinner than dosha batter.
  • Heat ottada tawa, put in full flame, pour a ladle batter to it. After a minute put into medium flame close the lid and cook without turning the ottada.
  • Serve hot with chana gravy or any other of your choice.

Ottada can be done in vellayappam chatti too, but gives best result with man chatti. Any ways try it out with vellayappam chatti
