Kozhi Ada Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

Kozhi ada is a well-known Malabar Muslim snack. If you are travelling or passing through the Malabar and National Highway (especially during Ramadan), then kozhi ada is something you should certainly try. At iftar, the roadside food stalls will sell sizzling kozhi adas, and it is the most pleasing way to taste Malabar cuisine. The city of Kozhikode is not an exception. Here the kozhi ada beats all the bakery snacks. It appears that kozhi ada was Koilandy's native (little townlet near Calicut), as, during the olden times, sundried meat was filled in it and stored for more extended periods. But remember that for 1 hour, you can slow roast the chicken and serve the same stuffing to cover the steamed rice dough.
