Thakkadi (தக்கடி) is a Sri Lankan food. The dish consists of rice balls or dumplings covered in a sauce and cooked in a mutton salna,[2] (a spicy gravy). Thakkadi originated in the predominantly Muslim Tamil communities in Sri Lanka and in Tamil Nadu.[2][3]


Thakkadi is made from steamed rice flour balls cooked in a mutton salna.[2] The balls are made of rice flour, finely sliced shallots, chopped curry leaves and shredded coconut. They are then cooked in a spicy meat (either mutton or beef) stew or dipped in spiced curry.[2]
