Kai Kadubu


Rice - 1 cup, soak for 1 hour
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Coconut-Jaggery Mix - 3 cups
Banana Leaves  - 10
Plastic Sheets -2
Steaming Vessel


  1. Grind rice into smooth batter.
  2. Add 3 cups of water, salt and turmeric powder to this batter.
  3. Take a heavy bottomed pan and cook this batter stirring continuously till it forms a lump.
  4. Once slightly cooled, mix the dough thoroughly.
  5. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each portion into roundel.
  6. Clean the banana leaves with a clean wet cloth.
  7. Slowly run each banana leaf above high flame so that the leaf loses its stiffness. Ensure that the entire leaf is run over the flame. This makes it easy for the leaf to be folded.
  8. Place one roundel in the centre in between two plastic sheets and press with your palm to flatten into small disc.
  9. Remove the plastic sheet on top, place some coconut-jaggery mix in centre of the disc.
  10. Carefully bring the edges of the disc using the plastic sheet underneath.
  11. Place it in a banana leaf piece and fold the leaf.
  12. Repeat the same for all the remaining dough roundels.
  13. Keep them in a steaming vessel and cook for 30-40mins.
  14. Remove from banana leaf and serve hot.
