These idlies are the most unique and delicious one. Its unique because jack fruit is a seasonal fruit and cannot make whenever needed. Ponsa idli is what we call them in konkani and also its the traditional Karnataka cuisine. It enhance the flavour and aroma of jack fruit so well. The colour also looks awesome. This is prepared with the addition of roasted rava, fresh grated coconut, jaggery with a touch of elachi flavour.Best way to make kids have Rava :) if there's any leftover idlies then, this tastes even more delicious and better if you shallow fry them in ghee on hot tawa.


11/2 Cup Ripe Jack fruit puree.

1 Plus Cup Roasted Rava (add more if consistency is watery)

3/4 Cup Grated Coconut ( white part)

3 to 4 tbsp Jaggery Syrup (according to the sweetness)

1 Elachi pd.

1 tsp Ghee.

Pinch of Salt.


Grind jack fruit in a blender till its smooth. No need to add water as the rest of the ingredients have water content. Drop them into a bowl and slowly add rava and mix till its consistency becomes thick. add elachi powder. Make sure no lumps are formed. Grease idly mould with ghee. Pour the batter and steam for 15 to 20 min. Serve hot with ghee :)
