Jack fruits season is here and here we go with Jack Fruit - Rava - Pepper Idli. 
No jaggery in this Jack fruit - Rava - Pepper Idli. It is a famous breakfast food in South Canara/Dakshina Kannada and other places in Karnataka.

 I have prepared jack fruit spicy idli before. Now it it Jack fruit - rava - pepper idli time. Jack fruit is from my sister Vijaya Lakshmi's house. When I went this time we brought one big jack fruit and the fruit is so tasty.
I thought of preparing jack fruit idli.
I have used medium size rava/semolina, coconut, pepper pods and a pinch of cooking soda.
I used the mixi only to grind the jack fruit pieces.
This Jack fruit idli is good for breakfast, kids snack box, travelling and picnic too.
It is a simple, with out jaggery Jack fruit idli and you can eat this Jack fruit - Rava - Pepper Idli at any time of the day.

Things Needed :

Jack fruits : 20 pieces or little more
Rava /Semolina : 1 1/2 cup
Pepper pods : 5 to 6
Coconut : 1 Cup
Salt : A little
Cooking Soda : A pinch

Method :

1. Cut jack fruits grind it with out using water and shift it to a big bowl.

2. Grate coconut and and mix it with jack fruit batter.

3. Add rava / semolina, a pinch of salt and mix it well.
4. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

5. Grease idli plates with ghee or coconut oil.
6. Add a pinch of cooking soda and mix the batter nicely.

7. Add this jack fruits idli batter to each idli mould. ( tatte).
8. Arrange them and keep it in a idli cooker /pressure cooker and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. ( Put a glass of water below the pressure cooker and then place the plates).

9. Put off the fire and take out the idli from idli plates.

10. Serve with ghee and pickle or any side dish or your choice.

Note :

Do not add any water while grinding jack fruits. You can also grind coconut along with jack fruits.
I just mixed fresh grated coconut with jack fruit batter. Let the whole batter rest for 5 minutes after you add rava. Add cooking soda at the last point. Just before you cook idli. A pinch of bicarbonate soda /cooking soda is enough to use.
Adding pepper is optional. But it is better to use pepper pods, so that it reduces the gas in jack fruits.
Time : 30 Minutes.
Serves :3 to 4.
