Kumbilappam (Steamed Jackfruit Cakes)



 Kerala's own cake, close to any malayalee's heart. The smell of this cake brings fond memories of my grandmother and also my childhood.




Chakka Varattiyathu- 2 cups
(Blend the jackfruit and boil the pulp till it is reduced to half and all the water is evaporated)
Coconut Grated: 2 cups
Sugar: 1 cup
Rice Flour: 3 cups
Cardamom Powder: 1 tbsp
Vazhanayila (Bay leaf) : as needed











Mix all the ingredients together and make a soft dough




Make cones out of the Bayleaf (like shown in the picture below)





Take the dough and fill the cones




Steam the dough filled cones in an Idly cooker till done (about 20 minutes)




Insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean, then your Kumbilappam is ready to eat.
