Kayi Ada/Unna Kaya (Stuffed Plantain-Fried)

Here is one of my all time favorite recipe for you. I love love and love anything with plantain. Kayi Ada/Unna kaya is one of the most popular snacks of Malabar. This delicious snack will be there on all occasions. Without Kayi ada and Erachi Ada (Malabar style Meat Pockets) no snack platters of Malabarians especially Kannur side will complete. These are king and queen of snacks of Malabar ;). This is one among the easiest ,yet delicious melt in your mouth snacks.

Sadly we won’t get this delicious and my favourite plantain here :(. I have to wait for vacation to indulge in this sweet beauty. These Kayi ada pictures I took when went home last December, and now I have to satisfy my self by seeing the pictures ;(.

Mashed plantains are stuffed with sweet filling, either coconuts or eggs, or else by mixing both eggs and coconuts. Both the ways it is yummilicious. Fried cashew nuts and raisins gives little crunchy and chewy texture.Dash of cardamom powder and ghee (clarified butter) gives mouthwatering aroma. How can someone not love this simple and delicious combo?!
