Total Time : 55 Min


Serves : 4
  • Dosa rice 1 cup

  • Grated coconut 1/2 cup 3/4 cup

  • Flattened rice 1/4 cup

  • Salt 1/4 tsp

  • Jaggery powdered 3/4 cup

  • Cardamom powder 1 tsp

  • Turmeric leaves 20 to 25


  • Wash turmeric leaves well and wipe out the extra water present in the leaves.
  • Wash and soak dosa rice for at least 1 hour. Also soak flattened rice and both keep aside.
  • Firstly prepare for the batter by grinding dosa rice, ½ cup of grated coconut, soaked flattened rice and salt to a fine thick paste. Add very little water while grinding the batter.
  • Meanwhile prepare for the filling and you are required to add grated coconut in a bowl along with  powdered jaggery and cardamom powder.
  • Mix three ingredients very well with the help of hands. The jaggery will start leaving its moisture content and gets incorporated well with grated coconut.
  • Take a spoon full of batter and spread into thin layer on top of the turmeric leaves.
  • Repeat the same procedure for all the remaining leaves.
  • Place a spoon full of filling above the spread batter vertically. Fold the leave and press gently against each other for few seconds to get each other stick.
  • With the help of steamer steam these leaves for 20 minutes. Once steamed the colour of the leaves turns yellow which confirms that they are cooked properly.
  • Serve hot patholi with fresh ghee.
