Bringing the ingredients together........

Ingredients

 Flour - 2 level cups  Cow Milk - 1/2 cup
 Ghee - 4 dsp & Coconuts - 3  Molasses - 1 1/4 lb
 Plantain leaf - 1  Ginger powder - 1 pinch
 Cumin seed powder- 1 pinch  Cardamom powder - 1 pinch

Preparation

Sift the flour, add 1 1/2 dsp Ghee, water and make a smooth batter. Wilt the plantain leaf by holding it over fire or putting them in boiling water. Rub lightly the batter over bits of plantain leaf, roll them and tie with strings. Boil water in a pan, and cook the plantain leaf rolls for ten or fifteen minutes. Separate the cooked "ada" from the leaves and wash in cold water so that it may not be sticky. Take extractions from the grated coconut with little water, about a cup the first time and with five cups of water the second time. Dissolve molasses in water and strain it and make a thick syrup. Put the adas into it with the remaining ghee and stir well. When it is almost dry, pour the second 
extraction of coconut milk and keep on stirring for sometime. When it thickens, add the first extraction of coconut milk, and 1/2 cup of cow's milk, and the powders. Stir and remove from fire. Serve hot.
