Erachi Ada/Erachi pathiri

My Little one's and Hubby's birthday are only 4 days apart,so after all the fun we had on junior's birthday,It didnt feel like a special day when his bday came,We even had left over birthday cake from lil one's party.As usual in the morning just wished him and thought of getting a birthday card and give him in the evening,but my friend was coming over for a tea with a brithday card for him,so finally I got mood to do something.If somebody joins us for tea/lunch or dinner I get all the extra energy to cook,So I decided to make something special,and the first thing that struck on my mind was Erachi ada/Erachi pathriri which is a malabar special item. Multi tasking is always easier,as I have to clean the chicken I decided to take a big portion of chicken to make some chicken curry aswell. While cleaning the chicken I kept some rice in a thick bottomed vessel for making paal payasam too,since it is thick bottomed I dont have to bother about stirring it until I finish cleaning the chicken. Voila !! Altast the day turned out to be surprise for him and even me too, it was a three course dinner !!


For dough

Plain flour or Wheat flour - 2 cups ( I used both plain flour and wheat flour 1 cup each)

For chicken filling

Chicken -250 gm
Onion - 1 small
Ginger - garlic paste - 1 tsp (optional)
Ginger chopped - 1tsp
Garlic chopped - 1 tsp
Redchilly powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 3/4 tbs
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Oil for deep frying


Marinate the chicken with redchilly powder,turmeric powder ,Ginger garlic paste and salt and keep it aside for half an hour.Cook the chicken and mince it.

In a nonstick pan pour some oil and saute the onions till brown in colour,add chopped ginger and garlic and then add garam masala , coriander powder and saute for 1 minute. Add the minced chicken and saute for 2-3 minutes.

Now divide the dough to small balls.Take one ball and roll it out to a small circle and spread the minced chicken mixture on it. Cover it with another one and press on the edges.Deep fry it in oil.
Serve hot with tea !!

This will yield 7-8 Erachi ada .
