Patoli is a traditional dessert made in parts of Karnataka and Konkan, infused with the earthy fragrance of turmeric. A similar dish in Kerala is made on banana leaves and is called ela ada.

When I saw the turmeric plant in my garden I was reminded of this dish and its aroma.

It is made with simple ingredients and is full of flavor with the goodness of coconut and jaggery.

Ingredients

  • Brown rice: ½ cup
  • Fresh coconut: 2 tbsp
  • Rock salt: ¼ pinch
  • Turmeric leaves/ Banana leaves - for steaming

For the filling

  • Fresh Coconut: 1 cup(grated)
  • Jaggery: ¾ cup
  • Water: 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom: 1 no

Method

  • Soak brown rice for 4 hours.
  • Grind with salt and grated coconut with very little water into a smooth and thick paste.
  • In a pan place the filling ingredients and cook well until the jaggery is melted and the mixture comes together and has no extra moisture.
  • Cool the filling.
  • Wash and wipe the leaves clean and dry.

  • Heat water in a steamer.
  • Apply the rice paste on the leaves with the back of a spoon or use your fingers.

  • Ensure that the paste applied is a thin layer. Refer picture.
  • Place the coconut filling on top of the rice paste on one side of the leaf.

  • Fold the leaf and press the edges.

  • Place the prepared leaves in a steamer and steam on high flame for 10 minutes.
  • Your kitchen will be filled by the aroma of fresh turmeric.
  • Carefully remove the leaves and separate the dumplings from the leaves.
  • Tastes great when warm.

Wellcure Tip:

  • If you don’t get turmeric leaves you can still make them with cut banana leaves.
  • If the leaves are too big to fit into the steamer you can cut them into halves.

​​​​​​​

  • · Thinner the rice paste layer better the final product.
  • · If you feel the rice paste is too thick and find it difficult to spread, u can mix a few spoons of water.
  • · Any leftover rice paste can be thinned down to a dosa batter and made into dosas.

Eating guide:

  • Food group: grains and nuts
  • Easy to combine the two food groups.
  • Being dairy-free, refined sugar- free and oil-free it’s a welcome change to the regular sweet dishes.
