Kozhi ada, how to make Malabar style kozhi ada (chicken hot pockets).
Kozhi ada is a popular Malabar Muslim snack. During the time of Ramadan; if you are travelling through the National highway and passing through Malabar, kozhi ada is something which you should try, the makeshift food stalls on the roadside at the time of Iftar will be selling hot kozhi adas. The best way to get the taste of Malabar food.
Kozhikode city is no exception, kozhi ada tops the bakery snacks at this time. Nidhi is fan of Malabar food and that's why authentic and traditional Malabar food finds its place here on the blog. One of her friend's mom introduced me to Malabar food; and she told me that kozhi ada is the most popular snack during Ramadan time. It seems, kozhi ada was a native of Koilandy (a small town near Calicut) and during the olden days sundried meat was used to fill in and can be stored for longer periods. But, you can also slow roast the chicken for 1 hour and do the same....that calls for another post.
The same filling can be covered with rice dough and steamed.
