Paalaada is a paper thin crepes which is soft as a sponge and it just melts in your mouth. It is a traditional muslim recipe and it is best served alongside with some spicy hot chicken or mutton curries.Nothing can beat this combo and i love it so much.
When i was little, one of our neighbour used to give this pancakes during each ramzan. I will so excited to see this and I love it so much, i think that the aunt was a genius to make such a thin dosa which is so soft. I asked my mom to make this for me. But sadly she didn't take any effort for making this.
The experience of eating this pancake will be like eating a soft cloud or something like that. Couple weeks back after i posted kinnathappam recipe, i was in a mood to make more muslim recipes for ramzan. So i decided to give this a shot and the result was pretty amazing.Hubby and my sister's enjoyed many of this crepes. So without any delay off you go to the recipe.

Preparation Time : 4 to 6 hours
Cooking Time: 30 sec or more for each crepes
Serves - 6 to 7
Rice - 2 cup( I used normal ponni rice)
Eggs - 2
Coconut Milk - 2 cup
Water as needed
Salt to taste
Wash and Soak rice for 4- 6 hours. Now drain them and add it to a blender and make into a fine puree. The consistency should be very smooth. You can add water to help the process going.
Now transfer this to a container. In the same blender add in eggs and whip them slightly. Pour that into the container as well.
Add in coconut milk, salt and enough water to make a very thin batter. The batter should be very watery.
Now heat a nonstick pan. Pour a ladleful of batter in it and swirl the pan so it coats on all side of the pan.
This takes only seconds to cook. Once it looks like it has cooked, you can fold it into traingles and place into hot case.
Serve with chicken curries or mutton gravy.
