Jackfruit Patholi is steamed folded on Teak-tree leaves which gives a unique aroma and taste to the Jackfruit Patholi. Also, teak leaves have medicinal properties. The leaves give a magenta colour to the Patholi after steaming.

Patholi is prepared in different ways. One of them is using rice rawa instead of soaking and grinding rice, this simplifies the process. The other way is grinding rice jackfruit Jaggery and coconut together and steaming them.

The one that I have made is a variation from the second type of Patholi wherein I have made a separate stuffing of coconut and jaggery and stuffed it inside the Patholi. This is how my grandma used to make patholi. Each one taste different from the other.

The same process can be made using banana leaves, in case the teak leaves are not available.

To make this dish yummier is adding more jackfruit to the batter. The more you add the soft and tasty it is. Try making it this jackfruit season and enjoy the taste of soft stuffed patholi with a juicy Coconut stuffing.
