Jackfruit, the hero of this dish in Jackfruit Idli Recipe | Panasa idli

The first taste of summer, that is what jackfruit is to many folks like me. When the trees begin to fruit, we know summer is around the corner. In Maharashtra it’s called Fanas and in Karnataka, it’s Halasa while in Hindi it is known as Kathal.

Jackfruit is my favorite and we all wait for the season to arrive. I love to eat it as fruit when ripe.  I have heard a lot about many delicious dishes made from it.

However so far I have never before experimented using jackfruit in my cooking. While searching for the recipes that uses jackfruit are in abdunnce on Google. As I love Idli, so this recipe caught my attention.

What is Rice rava used in making Jackfruit Idli Recipe | Panasa idli

Rice rava is used in many south indian cuisine recipes. It’s very easily available all over but if you wish to make it home, the recipe is super simple and the one main ingredient you need is, Rice.

To make rice rava :

Wash the rice thoroughly and soak it in water for atleast for 2 to 3 hours. Then drain and spread it over a cotton cloth to dry in the sun.

Once it’s completely dry blend it in the mixer. Then sieve it. The powder will be collected when you will sieve is rice flour and the coarse powder is rice rava.

How to make perfectly cooked jackfruit idli?

Few pointers must be taken into consideration before making these idlis.

First and foremost it’s the proportion of rice rava and jackfruit. As this recipe has no urad dal, which is must for making any idli, and it helps idlis to make soft and fluffy.

But for making this recipe it won’t make any bug difference as jackfruit and coconut lends that required softness.

Second, If you add more of idli rava to batter of jackfruit idli, it becomes hard.  While less of idli rava makes it difficult to handle and after steaming it sticks to fingers.

Third steam the idlis properly. Let it cool and then unmold it. This will give you perfect edges and you get  round idlies.

So come join me to make vegan & glutenfree Karnataka style jackfruit idli/ Panasa idli or halasina hannina kadubu.

 

Instructions to make Jackfruit Idli Recipe | Panasa idli

Peel, de seed and chop jackfruit roughly.
In a mixer, grind jackfruit flesh pieces and jaggery.

Add very little water. Jaggery will leave water as you grind.
Once it smoothens a bit, add grated coconut and elaichi.

Add very very little water and grind to a smooth paste.
Transfer the ground jackfruit puree into a mixing bowl.

 

 

Add little water, say less than 1/4 cup to the puree. Add rice rava and salt to it .
Mix everything well.

Allow the mixture to sit for 20 minutes so that rice rava soaks well in the mix.

After the mentioned time, check the consistency of the batter. It should be little thicker than idli batter. To make this idli no fermentation is required.

To steam idlis, heat water in a steamer. Grease idli moulds with ghee .

Pour the batter into idli molds. Steam for 15 minutes on medium flame. Then lower the flame and cook for about 5 more minutes.

Once it cool down a bit, check it with a tooth pick inserted, if it comes clean, its done.

After its cooled down, remove from moulds using a spoon or knife.

Sweet Jackfruit Idlis are ready to be served. Serve them hot or warm with a dollop of ghee, honey, pickle or spicey Garlic Coconut chutney.
