Moode ( Kedige Flavored Idlis | Idlis Steamed In Screw Pine Leaves )

Moode/Mude is a very traditional Mangalorean recipe! Moode with mooga ghasssi (sprouted moong dal curry) is a must for breakfast. It can also go well with sambar and coconut chutney. Its a most time made during festive occasion which includes Krishna janmastami, Chaturti and even during Deepavali. Moode idli batter is steamed in molds made from Kedige leaves (Screw pine), before these molds were made at home, now we purchase it in Mangalore stores. Kedige leaves gives a very special aroma and flavor to the idlis. Moode is usally prepared during festivals and weddings and the molds are available at Mangalore stores during festivals. Moode is very easy recipe, you need a right proportion of Rice and black lentil (Urad dal). I just love this along any veg or even non veg curry!
