Ponasa Patholi

One of the delicacy and very unique during jackfruit season. Jackfruit ground with rice and then steamed in turmeric leaves has a fantastic taste ! I did not have turmeric leaves so I steamed it in banana leaves. Let be turmeric or banana leaves we enjoyed it. First time for my daughter and she loved it :-)

Patholi is a delicacy in Konkan and Goan Communities. Konkani, Goan and Kerala people use coconut in almost all their food preparation. These places are located at coastal regions where coconut is grown in abundance. This is prepared without jackfruit too.

My maternal Uncle loved to have this with ghee on top and dip it into honey. I love it with honey too!







Ingredients:
1 Cup rice
1 cup cut jackfruit pieces
1 cup grated coconut
1 small piece jaggery

Stuffing:
1 cup jaggery powder
1/2 cup grated coconut
Pinch cardamom

Turmeric leaves or banana leaves cleaned.

Method:

Soak rice for 3-4 hours. Grind it with jackfruit pieces, grated coconut and jaggery without adding any water.
Make the stuffing. In a pan heat jaggery with little water. Add coconut and cardamom. Keep stirring until the water is evaporated. The mixture should be thick with no liquid.
Keep the turmeric or banana leaves ready. I cut the banana leaves into desired sizes and cleaned it.
Spread the batter with a spoon. Place the mixture in the middle, close and steam it for 15-20 mintues.
Serve with ghee or honey.
