Enduri Pitha

Ingredients to make Enduri Pitha

  • 1 cup skinned urad dal (biri dali)
  • 3 cups arwa rice (use jeera rice / gobindobhog instead)
  • 1 whole coconut (grated)
  • 1 cup ricotta / chenna
  • sugar to taste ( 7-8 tsp)
  • 8-10 broad turmeric leaves
  • 2-3 green cardamom
  • salt to add to the batter
  • ghee to grease the leaves

How to make Enduri Pitha

  1. Wash and soak the urad dal for 6-7 hours. Then grind into a smooth but thick paste. Keep this paste aside overnight or for 10-11 hours.
  2. Grate the coconut and mix it with the crumbled ricotta and sugar. Add in the crushed cardamom for flavour.
  3. Heat water in a idli maker/pressure cooker. Bring to a boil.
  4. Wash the turmeric leaves and leave them in the open air to dry the water. Add 2-3 drops of ghee and smear it over each leaf.
  5. Take a blob of the batter and spread it evenly on the leaf. Spread 2-3 tsp of the coconut-ricotta mixture over the batter.
  6. Fold the leaf carefully and place it on the idli stand. Repeat the process for the remaining batter/leaves.
  7. The leaves can be stacked one over the other for 2-3 layers. Close the lid and steam for 15-20 minutes on a medium flame. Remove it from the stove.
  8. Remove the turmeric leaves. Serve the pitha with ghee/sugar or dalma.

My Tip:

Sada enduri ( without the sweet stuffing ) is very popular with Mutton Jholo or Mutton Kasa.
