  • 15 ripe jackfruit bulbs (net weight 225 g - after removing seeds)

  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add 2-3 tbsp thick jaggery and mix well again.
  • Clean banana leaf. Smoke leaf on flame for a few seconds so that it becomes flexible and easy to fold.
  • Cut leaf into 7-inch square pieces.
  • Keep 2 tbsp jackfruit batter in the centre and fold. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  • 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.
  • Cool, remove the banana leaf covering and enjoy the snack.
