Kaibella kadbu (sweet dish made of rice flour, jaggery and coconut)
Sunday Morning is one special morning to cook for your loved one’s favourite dishes.
So I choose this dish as breakfast. In this chill winter people prefers hot and spicy food and but my husband love to have hot and sweet food.
Let me start telling you all the ingredients required and method to do this dish.
(Kindly forgive me presentation is not up to the standard)

a) 1 ½ glass of rice : overnight soak
b) 1 big cup of jaggery : grated
c) 1 big cup of coconut : grated
d) Cardamom : 5-6 seeds smashed one
e) Banana leaves : 1 big ( cut them into square shape )
f) Salt : according to taste


· Grind the overnight soaked rice into mild paste (not fine paste) also add ¼ cup of grated coconut.
· In a simmer sauté the rice paste by adding little water to make a thick consistence to prepare rice bolls out of it. (Don’t forget to add the salt here)
· Once it is done keep aside for cooling.
· In a pan add the jaggery, Coconut grated and cardamom, sauté for 5 minutes on simmer until it becomes a perfect for stuffing. ( keep this also for cooling )
· Once the rice flour is cooled, make medium size bolls.
· On square shaped banana leaf apply little water and pat the rice boll into round shape, now place the sweet mixture inside it.
· Fold it in such a way that it should not open or else you can tie a knot by using thread.
· Now cook in idly cooker by placing one by one for about 10 minutes.
