Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. 1 cup idli rice or dosa rice
  2. 1 cup freshly grated coconut
  3. 3 tbsp roasted urad dal
  4. 8 red chillies
  5. 2 tbsp Coriander seeds
  6. 1 tbsp jeera
  7. 1 Lemon size tamarind
  8. 1 Lemon size jaggery
  9. Salt as per taste
  10. Big palak leaves 20 (destemmed)


  1. Soak rice for 2 hours in water. Grind this soaked rice with all the other ingredients except Palak. The consistency should be more or less like the idli batter.
  2. Keep aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Clean the palak leaves gently by patting with a wet cloth. Do not tear the leaves.
  4. Now take the biggest leaf of palak and spread it upside down on the table top.
  5. Take 1 1/2 tsp batter and spread over the leaf. Put another leaf on top of it and repeat the same.
  6. After stacking at least 6 or 7 leaves, close the sides of the stacked leaves first and roll all the leaves tightly.
  7. Apply the batter generously outside the rolls also. Repeat the same for rest of the leaves.
  8. Keep the rolls in a steel plate and steam it in a cooker or an idli cooker. Steam them for 15 minutes and then cool them.
  9. Cut the rolls into 1 inch thick wheels. Heat a tawa, smear a little oil. Just roast the pinwheels on both sides for a few seconds.
  10. Serve hot.
