This is my MIL’s style Vazhaithandu poriyal recipe (Banana stem curry) which is a super healthy and excellent side dish for sambar rice. We try to include Banana stem in our diet at least once in a week as it is a rich source of fiber, Potassium and Vitamin B6. It helps to ease constipation and is good for treating and preventing Kidney stones.

Mostly I make banana stem juice with buttermilk and salt. Sometimes I make poriyal, kuzhambu, thayir pachadi or add in sambar. Recent days I started to make Vazhaithandu dosa as well. Soon I will try to post a collection of all the Vazhaithandu recipes in my blog for easy reference.

Today’s recipe is a very easy and simple Tamil nadu style poriyal recipe with Vazhaithandu. My MIL makes it without onion and garlic but I used garlic today. Also she uses red chilli for spicy taste whereas I used sambar powder for variation. It came out so well. We all loved it. Even Raksha who eats only dosa with Vazhaithandu ate this poriyal today without complaints.

Friends, do try this yummy and healthy raw banana stem poriyal for rice and enjoy with your family. But make sure you use tender and fresh banana stem for best taste.

This is my second version of Karnataka specia thatte idli recipe also known as plate idli in English (In Kannada, Thatte means plate). Long back I shared a fool proof recipe for thatte idli learning from my REGIDREAE Snapback Walmart Inc. Flat Bill Baseball Cap Athletic friend Priya. I have been following that recipe for years. Recently I was watching some Bidadi special thatte idli from popular hotels in YouTube. Based on the recipes they shared, I tried this recipe from Bagya Tv YouTube channel which is very similar to my Kushboo idli.

Thatte idli came out super soft and spongy. Usually baking soda is added in most of the recipes. But I did not even used baking soda. Still idli came out so well. I have used thatte idli stand that I bought in Amazon. But you can make this idli even without thatte idli stand. You can simply use the lid of steel boxes or make it as normal idli. There will be no difference in texture and taste. 

Friends, If you are looking for a super soft, fluffy thatte idli recipe, you must try this one. I am sure you will love the result. Lets see how to make Karnataka hotel style thatte idli recipe with step by step pictures.


Karnataka Hotel style Thatte idli recipe


 
Cuisine: Karnataka
Category: Main course
Serves: 15
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 20 Minutes
Total time: 30 Minutes
 


INGREDIENTS
1 cup = 250ml
  • Idli rice / Salem rice / Boiled rice - 3 cups
  • Urad dal - 1 cup ( I used white, round dal)
  • Fenugreek / Methi seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Thick Rice flakes / Aval / Poha - 1/2 cup
  • White, big Sago / Sabudana - 1/4 cup
  • Salt & water - as needed
HOW TO MAKE THATTE IDLI
  1. Wash the rice thrice till water is clear.
  2. To the rice, add urad dal and methi seeds. Wash once and soak in enough water for 4 hours. 
  3. In another bowl, wash and soak sago and poha for 4 hours.
  4. Grind everything together till it turns to smooth paste.
  5. Collect the batter in a big bowl and close it with a lid. \
  6. Ferment the batter over night or 12 hours. The next morning, mix the batter well.
  7. Grease thatte idli plate with oil or line with cotton cloth and pour the batter to fill it. Boil water in idli pot.
  8. Steam it for 15 minutes till idli is non sticky to touch.
  9. Remove the thatte idli plate and rest for few minutes. Loosen the sides and remove it.
  10. Serve hot with your favorite chutney and sambar. I served with Kempu chutney/ Red chutney !
METHOD - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
  • Wash the idli rice twice or thrice till the water looks clear. Add urad dal, methi seeds and wash it once. Add required water and soak the rice, dal mixture for 4 hours minimum.

  • In another bowl, wash and soak sago, poha for 4 hours. I soaked in drinking water and used the same water for grinding. 

  • Grind the soaked rice, urad dal, methi seeds, sago and poha till smooth. Add required water while grinding. I did not add salt while grinding as it delays fermentation for Bangalore weather.

  • Collect the batter in a big bowl. Cover with a lid and ferment the batter over night or 12 to 15 hours.

  • The next morning, batter would have raised well. Add salt and mix the batter well. Grease thatte idli plates with oil or line the plate with cotton cloth.

  • Pour 2 to 3 ladles of batter and arrange in the stand. Boil water in idli pot and place the thatte idli stand. If you don’t have thatte idli stand, you can use steel box lids and pour the batter. Place the lid over the idli plate and steam it for 15 to 20 minutes till idli is non sticky to touch.
  • Remove the plate and rest for few minutes. Loosen the sides with a knife or spoon. Remove the idli and serve hot with your favorite chutney and sambar. Enjoy !

Note

  • For variations, you can add a pinch of baking soda, rest the batter for 10 minutes before making idli.
  • Idli should be steamed for 15 to 20 minutes to cook well.
  • If you have not used cotton cloth to line the plate, remove the idli after resting for 5 minutes else idli will break while removing it.

Serve this hot and yummy Thatte idli with butter and red chutney, sambar or sagu.

Aval puttu / Poha jaggery puttu is one of the easy and yummy neivedyam recipes you can prepare for Gokulashtami, Navarathri and other occasions at home. I learnt this recipe from my MIL. She used to make it often for our Friday Thiru vilakku poojai.

Last week I made this for my pooja asking the recipe and procedure from her. Actually my MIL told me to add powdered jaggery to the powdered and soaked poha directly. But I made jaggery syrup and strained it as it had some impurities. If your jaggery is clean, you can powder and add it as such.

Friends, do try this easy Aval puttu / Poha puttu for Gokulashtami festival and enjoy.


Aval puttu / Poha puttu recipe for Gokulashtami and Navarathri festivals.


 
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Sweet
Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 20 Minutes
Total time: 30 Minutes
 


INGREDIENTS
1 cup = 250ml
  • Thick or thin poha - 1 cup
  • Powdered jaggery - 1/2 cup
  • Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom - 2 (Crushed)
  • Hot Water - as needed
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Cashew nuts - few
  • Ghee - 1 tbsp
HOW TO MAKE AVAL PUTTU
  1. Dry roast aval / poha for 5 minutes in medium flame till crispy.
  2. Remove and powder it coarsely. Wash and keep it aside.
  3. Add little hot water to make the poha soft. Cover it for 10 minutes
  4. Poha becomes soft and crumbly in few minutes.
  5. Boil jaggery and melt it. Strain the syrup and boil till frothy and thick.
  6. Add the syrup to the soaked poha. Mix well.
  7. Add cardamom powder, grated coconut and mix well.
  8. Lastly roast the cashews in ghee till golden in color.
  9. Add to the aval puttu and offer as prasadam to Lord Krishna for Gokulashtami !
METHOD - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
  • Heat a kadai and dry roast the aval / poha for few minutes in medium flame. Roast till it becomes crispy. You can use thin or thick poha.

  • Remove and cool down. Grind to a coarse powder and add little hot water to it. ( Say 1/2 to 3/4 cup). Cover and sit for 10 minutes. Poha absorbs all the water and it becomes soft, crumbly.
  • In the mean time, boil the jaggery adding 1/4 cup water and melt it. Strain the syrup and boil again till syrup becomes frothy and slightly thick.

  • Add the syrup to the soaked aval and mix well. It will look mushy initially but it becomes crumbly and fluffy after some time.

  • Lastly add the crushed cardamom,grated coconut and mix gently. Roast cashews in ghee and add to the poha mix.

  • Mix well and offer as prasadam to Lord Krishna. You can also make this neivedyam for Navarathri along with some sundal varieties.

  • Enjoy !

Note

  • For variations, you can add powdered jaggery to the soaked poha if its clean.
  • For thin poha, just follow the same procedure but do not add all the syrup at once. Add gradually till poha absorbs it because thin poha doesn’t take all the syrup.

 

Delicious Aval Puttu recipe is ready to relish !
