Genda adde

A famous mangalore dish made up of – methi, rice and coconut.
Ingredients I used – 1 cup rice, 1/2 tsp methi, 1/4th shredded coconut, little jeera, little beaten rice,1 onion, jaggery as per taste, ghee to roast ans pinch of salt.
1. Rice and methi – soak 6-8 hrs..
2. Grind it with coconut,jaggery , jeera, beaten rice. Make it slight watery..
3. Keep the cooker in low flame, Now Fry onion in ghee and wait till it turns to golden brown.
4. Add the mix and stir well for 5 mins..
5. Close the lid.. keep the flame in 4 if maximum is 10. Cook for 25 mins.
6. Once cooked wait minimum 4-5 hrs to cool down.

This dish has lot of memories. The authentic one prepared using charcoal. Mom used to prepare this way. In recent years this is replaced by cooker – cooked in low flames. But the taste can never match with authentic one.

College days, mom used to give it for lunch. My friends Ranjeeth and Sunil never failed to eat.. Even now we talk about this adde and of-course gulaab jamoon 🙂

This is sweet dish. So obviously Sandeep never says No for this!
