kotte kadubu recipe | idli in jackfruit leaves recipe | gunda recipe with detailed photo recipe. kotte kadubu is usually prepared during festival in south india.kotte kadubukotte kadubu recipe | idli in jackfruit leaves recipe | gunda recipe also called as halasina kotte kadubu is considered very auspicious breakfast in udupi. halasina kotte kadubu is a type of idli very simple and popular breakfast in many south indian homes. udupi cuisine is almost synonymous with idli and dosas.

idlis are considered clean, healthy and tasty breakfast as they are steamed. idlis are best enjoyed with sambar and chutneys. my mom always prepares idli and dosas for everyday breakfast as they are rich in proteins. though idlis need lotsa effort rite from soaking, grinding and fermentation. its worth enough to enjoy the healthy breakfast.

kotte kadubu

i love to try instant versions of idli recipes like rava idli, sabudana idli, instant poha idli, stuffed idlioats idli etc. halasina kotte kadubu recipe is shared and prepared by my mother-in-law. today i am  also showing how to prepare halisa kotte from jackfruit leaves. my mother-in-law loves halisana kotte kadubu as these idlis  turn up ultra soft, fluffy and very light along with its own distinct aroma which makes breakfast complete. you can also call these idli as mallige idli.

these kotte kadubu are much much softer than the usual idli with idli rava (cream of rice) and idli made with cooked rice. i have also shared mini idli and idli recipe making in mixer. idlis can be served with coconut chutney or sambar. i personally like kadubu with peanut chutney, sweet potato chutney, cucumber sasmi chutney and/or chutney pudi with lots of sambar.

notes:

  • if you do not get jackfruit leaves, you can steam in long steel / copper glasses.
  • you can use pressure cooker to steam idlis. but don’t put the vent weight / whistle.
  • do not add salt for the entire batter, if you want to store batter for long time.
  • always store the batter in airtight container in refrigerator.
  • do not add too much water while grinding the batter. add only required amount.
  • if you live in cold countries then cover and ferment in a warm place for 12 hours.
  • if you live in a warmer place, then ferment for 8 hour max.
  • i usually keep my batter in pre heated oven (switch off the oven though) to ferment idli batter well. if possible try to preheat oven ever 3-4 hours.
