Kotte kadubu recipe explained with step by step pictures. Kotte kadubu is a soft idli prepared using normal idli batter and jack fruit leaves. Kotte kadubu or halasina ele kadubu is a traditional breakfast recipe. Kotte kadubu is prepared using rice and urad dal. You can serve these kadubu with coconut chutney or sambar.
You can prepare these kotte kadubu by grinding the soaked rice or using idli rava or by using upma rava. I have used idli rava or rice rava in this recipe. If you want to use idli rice then refer this idli recipe using idli rice post. And if you want to use rava or sooji, then slightly roast the rava, wait until warm and then add it to the ground urad dal batter.
Kotte kadubu will be softer than the normal idlis. So the rice and urad dal ratio is 3:1. While giving the ingredientsmeasurement I have given the range.., which you have to decide based on the climate and the type of grinder used.
It is said that, cooking idlis in jack fruit leaves are good for health. Kotte kadubu will not cause any digestive issues, which you normally face with the regular idlis.
I have posted one more soft idli recipe prepared using methi seeds, which is very soft and diabetic friendly recipe. Also I have posted four instant idli recipes like rava idli, pumpkin sweet idli, apple sweet idli and cucumber idli.
