Idlis In Banana/Jackfruit leaves (Easy Hittu/Khotte/Kadubu)


We had posted the traditional way of making Hittu/khotte or kadubu couple of years ago. Making the baskets for these is a time consuming work and takes some expertise. Any mistake and the idli batter comes out of the baskets and makes a mess. So here are some easy ways of making these delicious hittus.

In Banana leaves :
Usually(atleast at our place), hittu is prepared in jackfruit leaves. But these are hard to find everywhere. Instead, you can use banana leaves which can be found readily in many places. Here is a step by step pictorial of how this is prepared.

In Jackfruit leaves:
The traditional hittu requires 4 leaves. Here is an easy way to make this with only one leaf. Be very careful while steaming these.

Updated: In the above post, hittu is served with Muga Mole Randayi
