Jackfruit Idlis.

Jackfruit idlies are very tasty to have and good for all time food.

Raw Rice : 11/2 Cups.
JackFruits : 4 cups.(20 to 25 Fruits cut into small pieces).
Fresh grated coconut: 1 Cup.
Jaggery : 1/2 cup.
Salt : according to the taste.
Oil  or Ghee : 1 Table spoon.
Wash and soak raw rice in water for 1 to 2 hours. Then strain all the water and keep it aside. Grind Jack fruits and coconut until nice paste, then add rice to it and grind nicely adding very little water. ( Rava consistency). Add jaggery and grind for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the Mixi Jar and put it to the bowl. Add salt and mix well.

Now apply ghee or oil to idli plates and put a spoonful jackfruit dough and steam in Idli cooker or pressure cooker for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve Hot Jackfruit Idlis  with little ghee on the top.
Note:  Use jaggery according to your taste bud. Must use very little water to keep the dough consistency very thick.   Using lots of Jack fruit also advisable so that you can reduce the coconut.  
Can also use Samolina instead of rice. ( Roast until raw smell disappear or steam dry rava for 8 to 10 minutes,  and add this rava when it is cooled to the ground Jack Fruit mixture thoroughly and cook).
Serves 4 to 5.
