Steamed Jackfruit Wheels - For Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge


From this month I am a member of a very interesting new group called shhh-cooking-secretly-challenge  cook  started by Priya Suresh . In this we are paired with other blogger and we tell the ingredients to each other with which we need to cook. We are not supposed to reveal the ingredients before posting the entry and thats actually very exciting as to each one keeps guessing the ingredients.We are supposed to post out entry between 16th - 18th of every month and till then other then the pair no one else knows that the dish is cooked with which ingredients. Isn't it very interesting. If you too want to join this challenge please check here.  This month I was paired with Hema Vijay  who has a very nice collection in her blog aromatic-cooking  please check her blog for many wonderful recipes. She gave me the ingredients Jackfruit and rice and I decided to make these delicious steamed wheels . They were yummy.









Ingredients :

2 cups .......................rice flour
2 cups........................water
1 tsp............................ghee
salt
200 gm .....................jackfruit (8 -10  individual portions )
1/2 cup.....................fresh scraped coconut
1/4 cup....................sugar ( if needed)






Method :


Discard the seeds of jackfruit and chop them finely.

In a vessel add little ghee and roast the scraped coconut.

Now add sugar to it and when it starts melting switch off the gas.

Add the chopped jackfruit and mix well and keep aside.

Now boil water in a pan with ghee and salt .

When it starts boiling add rice flour and mix both very well.

Switch off the gas and keep the pan covered for 15 minutes.

When the mixture is still warm knead it carefully to a semi soft dough.

Make 3 to 4 balls of this dough.

Roll each ball into a round of 8 inches diameter.

Spread the above mixture of jackfruit evenly on this rolled chapati and make a roll.

Steam this roll in a idli maker or even a cooker without keeping the pressure.







Steam for 20 to 25 minutes.

When cool cut into wheels .

While serving make them little warm in oven and serve with a spoonfull of ghee.
