  • 15 ripe Jackfruit bulbs (net weight 225 g - after removing seeds)
  • 60 g - grated Coconut
  • 1 cup - Rice flour
  • 2-3 tbsp - thick Jaggery (melted and sieved)
  • 1 big Banana leaf (vazhayila)
  • How to Make Jackfruit Ela Ada - Ponsa Patholi:

    1. Cut ripe jackfruit into small pieces and make a smooth paste in a mixer with grated coconut. Do not add water when making paste. It should be thick.
    2. Transfer the paste into another container and mix with rice flour. Stir continuously for 4-5 minutes until rice flour is well mixed with jackfruit mixture.
    3. Add 2-3 tbsp thick jaggery and mix well again.
    4. Clean banana leaf. Smoke leaf on flame for a few seconds so that it becomes flexible and easy to fold.
    5. Cut leaf into 7-inch square pieces.
    6. Keep 2 tbsp jackfruit batter in the centre and fold. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
    7. Arrange the adas in a steel bowl and steam in a pressure cooker (without weight) or in a steamer for 25-30 minutes on medium heat.
    8. Cool, remove the banana leaf covering and enjoy the snack.
