Jackfruit Idly

I am sharing my 50th recipe with one of the greatest Jackfruit recipes. I learnt this recipe from my mom. Traditionally Rice and Banana leafs are used to make this dish. But I used semolina instead of Rice because it  makes the cooking faster. If you have time, go ahead with Rice. I used Idly plates since I do not get Banana leaf here. Give it a try. Have fun.

  • 1 cup ground Jack fruit/ pulp
  • 1 cup Semolina/ Rave/ Suji
  • 1/4 Cardamom powder( optional)
  • 4-5 tbsp Jaggery ( to taste)
  • salt to taste

  • Dry roast the Semolina until you can feel the aroma.
  • Mix the roasted Semolina with Jack fruit pulp,Jaggery,Coconut and salt to taste. You can add 1/4 tsp Cardamom powder if you like.Add some water if required.Consistency should be as of Idly batter.
  • Grease a Idly plate with some Oil or Ghee( not necessarily), pour a table spoon full of batter.Steam for 15-20min.Allow to cool for few mins.
  • Serve hot with Ghee and fresh Coconut Milk.
If you are using Rice:
Soak 1 cup of rice for 3-4 hours and coarsely grind with Jack fruit and Coconut.Add Cardamom powder,Jaggery and salt mix well.
