Steamed Delight

User Submitted Recipes, ,

When I saw that the ingredient was rice for the contest, I remembered one of my childhood favorites (Ila Ada and Kozhukatta). Both have the same dough and the same filling, but that they are in different shapes. Ila ada is made by spreading the dough thinly onto banana leaves and has a sweet filling in the center, while kozhukkatta is just the rice dough shaped like a ball with the same sweet filling stuffed in the center. Both are steamed, hence making both very healthy and light.

Sweet Corn has a natural sweetness and a wonderful flavor that suits best for a kheer. China grass or kadal paasi (as we call in Tamil Nadu) is very good for health and it is used in a famous drink called Jiharthanda. It adds a great texture to the drink. Hence I combined both and developed this delicious Kheer.
