I learnt this dish from my mother in Law.  She is a seasoned cook and expert in traditional Konkani recipes.    She used to pack this for us on our way back to Calicut.  Nowadays I get plenty of pumpkin leaves in my garden  and I have also started preparing various dishes of pumpkin leaves, stem, flower etc.  my son and hubby like this very much.

Pumpkin leaves.           10
Rice                                1 cup

Grated coconut           1tbsp
Uraddal                         2tbsp
Chilly powder                2tbsp
Salt to taste
Hing pinch


soak rice and toordal  for  1 hour. Clean and wash pumpkin leaves.
In a pan dry fry the urad dal  till it become light brown.
Wash the soak rice mix..then grind it with coconut and fried uraddal (with little water) coarse  paste then add chilly powder,saltand hing..mix it well.
Then apply this paste to pumpkin leaves… layers by layer(like pathrode). Make roll from that.. cut in to round pieces .. roll it in rice flour and deep fry them..


  1. Hi,
    Thanks for putting this recipe online for us. One small question. Can we use either Duddi paan or Kuvale paan for this? Or is it strictly Duddi paan only?

    Thanks for clarification.
