Today it’s going to be Chettinad special; I learnt this recipe from my friend’s mom, when I first tried this it tasted like heavenly as soon as we finish our dinner my hubby said make a note of the recipe. One of the healthy snack for kids even though I had hard time to feed this to my kids.

Aadikkool is one of the main foods in chettinad for all occasions; they use to serve this at the last meal of any function. Like we use to celebrate wedding for 2 days at the end of the second day this aadikkool will be served and which indicates the function is over. Thanks Susheela aunty for teaching this wonderful recipe and it became our all time favorite.


Urad dhal flour
½ cup
½ cup
¾ cup
2 cup



  1. Dry roast the urad dhal until light brown and nice aroma comes out. Allow it to cool.
  2. Grind that to fine powder using mixe and sieve the flour and measure it.
  3. Add jaggery and water in a sauce pan and start to cook until the jaggery dissolve.
  4. Mean time heat ghee in a stick pan, once the ghee is hot add the flour all at once and cook for few minutes.
  5. In this time jaggery water will start to boil, now turn off that and filter the jaggery syrup into flour and mix well without any lumps. Cook for few minutes or until it start to leave the sides of the pan.
  6. Serve hot with little ghee on top.
  • No need of any string consistency just allow the syrup to boil once, if you feel its hard to cook both simultaneously. Prepare the syrup filter and put that in low flame. But don’t leave for longtime.
  • When adding the sugar syrup to flour it will bubble so be careful when doing this.
  • If you drop a small portion of aadikkool in water, if you can able to roll using your fingers then it’s done.
  • I used half ghee and half oil but the original recipe was done with ghee.
  • I haven’t tried with store bought flour.
