Last year, I had written about the white beautiful polas / arippodi dosa / rice flour pancakes from our cuisine.It still remains as a wonderful member of the breakfast / dinner menu which can be taken with any curry! This time, another "pola" from my place which you might have noticed in many other blogs in various attarctive names! Love letters,madakku san, mutta kuzhalappaam, Thera ada,elaanji.. etc are the names I could see in other blogs.Earlier maida / all purpose flour is used for making this, but at home we altered it to aatta / wheat powder or a mixture of aatta and maida.During childhood, we often enjoyed this snack, which was enough to fill the stomach! Nowadays this lovely pola has been one of the kid's favourites, and I enjoy making this for them.. You can change the filling according to your taste, jaaggery or sugar with coconut, plantains etc..I used Aatta for making this, hence it got the golden color.
Aatta / wheat powder / maida / all purpose flour 1 1/2 cups
How I prepared
Break the egg into the flour. Blend them with enough salt and water. Make a medium thick batter by adding enough water.You can avoid adding egg if you don't like.The batter should be without lumps.(If you like cardamom flavour , add a cardamom while blending).
Heat a frying pan / griddle, pour one or two ladle ful of batter.Spread it using the back side of ladle.Do it carefully.
When one side is coooked, flip it over, and pour little ghee (1/2 teaspoon or more) over it.When the other side too cooked, remove from the griddle, and keep on plate.
Put grated coconut-sugar or coconut-jaggery mixture over it and fold.
Enjoy with tea!
