How to Make Steamed arvi

  • Clean the arvi leaves in running water and remove the stem. Keep it aside.
  • Grind together coconut, jaggery, tamarind water, red chillies, rice, coriander seeds and turmeric to form a thick paste.
  • Make sure that you don't add too much water as the paste has to be applied to leaves.
  • Add salt according to taste to this paste.
  • Take a arvi leaf and spread this paste on the leaf.
  • Lay another leaf on top of the paste and again spread some paste. You can bind together 3-4 leaves like this.
  • Make a roll and steam it.
  • It takes at least 30-40 mins in a rice cooker for steaming.
  • Serve them with butter or ghee.
  • Variation :
  • You can make slices of this roll when they are cooled. Then roast the rolls on a tawa with a little oil, browning on the both sides.
