Jaggery: 1 cup
Coconut (grated): 1 cup
Elachi (Cardamom) powder: 1/2 tsp
Vazhai elai (plantain leaf) : one
Cashewnuts: few
Milk: sufficient amount to prepare the dough
Ghee: little (for greasing the plantain leaf)

  • Add adequate amount of milk and make a soft dough.
  • Make small balls out of this dough.
  • Cut the vazhai elai (plantain leaf) into small square pieces.
  • Take one piece of vazhai elai, apply ghee on it.
  • Spread the dough ball on this greased vazhai elai.
  • Place one or two cashews on it and close it with another greased vazhai elai.
  • Similarly spread all balls on the greased vazhai elai.
  • Place all these on idly plate and steam cook it for 4-5mins.

    Anu…this looks very tempting, any chance of making this without the plantain leaf? Can make the dough watery enough so that I can make it like a regular dosa on a tava?

      Mmm… havent tried without plantain leaf. I guess its a very popular dish in Kerala! Am sure you make it as sweet dosa too. My aunt makes a similar recipe, I will find out and let you know.
