Sweet jackfruit dosa/ponsa polo


It's jackfruit  season,and I just had to try something different. So thought  of giving  little twist to my favorite dosa. Jackfruit  whether ripe or raw can be used in a myriad of dishes. This dosa is one of them.This is a quick and easy dosa and no need to ferment this batter. An interesting sweet treat, especially for children! these dosas taste very nice when served warm with a dollop of butter.

Ingredients :

  1. 2 Cups Dosa rice 
  2. 1 cup jaggeey
  3. 1 cup de-seeded jackfruit bulbs
  4. 1 cup Freshly grated coconut
  5. 11/2 tsp salt 
  6. Baking soda 1/2 tsp  
  7. Ghee for preparing dosa
Metod :

  • Wash the rice and ,then soak it in water for at least 2 hours.
  • Grind all ingredients(except the ghee) till you get a fine batter. The batter should  be thick like idli batter.
  • Heat griddle/ nonstick pan,pour a ladle full  of the batter onto a hot  pan and spread a portion of the batter to get a mini dosa of 75 mm. (3”) in diameter. Drizzle a little more ghee and cover with a lid and cook on medium flame for two or three minutes . Then cook uncovered till you see the tiny little holes on it. flip and cook till it is light brown in colour from both the sides.
  •  Remove  and serve hot with a dollop of homemade butter .

    Kadgi chakko

    Kadgi chakko

    Kadgi Chakko  is a traditional curry made with raw jackfruit known as "Kadgi in Konkani. Jackfruit is mostly consumed as a ripened fruit, but its raw flesh is made into jackfruit chips or curries with coconut and served with rice as a side dish ...Come summer, South canara has its share of mangoes and jackfruits.
    In this recipe raw jackfruit is chopped and cooked and then added with the coarsely ground  coconut paste and seasoned with mustard seeds, curry leaves in aromatic coconut oil.
    During grandmas time, coconut was grinded in a stone grinder or "Ragado" as it is known in Konkani. This gives the most yummiest earthy flavor and sometimes I love to go the traditional way to make authentic konkani dishes.

    1. 1/2 coconut,freshly grated

    6. A small marble sized Tamarind ball
    7. 2tsp Coconut oil
    For the tempering:

    1. 1tbsp Coconut oil
    2. 1tsp Mustard seeds
    3. 2 Springs of Curry leaves
    1. Cut the jackfruit into 4 pieces and cut the 
    2. Wash jackfruit pices thoroughly (to remove the saltiness) and pressure cook.Take about 3 whistles.When cool open the lid and Mash the jackfruit pieces coarsely with the back of the spoon.
    3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and fry urad dal and coriander seeds till light brown and keep aside.Add red chillies into the same pan and roast till crisp.
    4. Prepare the masala by grinding coconut, red chillies, and tamarind to a coarse paste.
    5. Now add fried coriander seeds and urad dal and grind to a smooth paste.(Add just enough water to grind them. Do not add too much of water as this curry is prepared dry)
    6. Now heat remaining oil in a pan and add mustard seeds,let it crackle add curry leaves and add the ground masala paste to this.
    7. Now add the mashed jackfruit and salt ,mix it nicely.
