At my Madras mom's place it is White Ada... Ada made with rice flour, coconut, onions, ginger and green chillies.... and it goes well with chicken or beef stew.
Rice flour: 2 cups
Onion: 1 small chopped fine
Ginger: 1/2 inch chopped fine
Green chilly: 1 small chopped fine
Grated coconut: 3/4 cup
Boiling water: 1.25 cups (maybe a little more)
Saltl: as required
Mix the chopped onions, ginger, greenchillies, salt and coconut well with the rice flour.
Add the boiling water and mix properly with a spoon.
When you can handle the mix, make a pliable dough
Now take a small amount of dough (a passion fruit sized ball) on a plastic sheet and spread it into a circle with your finger tips.
Transfer it into a heated non stick pan. (Optional: you can grease the corners)
Turn and cook the other side also.
Tastes good hot with chicken stew. (Chicken stew recipe is here )
