Sometimes it is nice to go back to basics. And these again are not available in the stores in Chennai. Mangalore stores in Bangalore, is a good place for me to get the leaves.
Get the jackfruit moulds from the store.
For the idly:
Soak 1 cup udad Dal and 3 cups of rice along with 1tbsp of methi/ fenugreek seeds in separate containers for minimum 3 hrs.
Grind the above and mix them together. Leave it to ferment over night.
Next morning add salt to the batter and steam the batter in the jackfruit leaves cup.
Enjoy with chutney and sambar.
The aroma of the jackfruit leaves is something I say!!!
