 Some Holiges made out of cocconut cream
Some Holiges made out of cocconut cream

HOLIGE (the ‘o’ should be pronounced longer ) is a very popular Indian sweet dish .It is prepared indifferent parts on India-both north and south. It is prepared during festivals and town fairs, and also during enjoyable occasions at home,like wedding, engagemwnt, etc.

Holige,is prepared by using Channa dal(toor dal).On grinding it( now a days in the mixer) after baking, its paste is formed.And that paste is wrapped in a outer coat of Fine soji (Chiroti rawa) , slapped lightly to make it thin spread round object like Roti.While doing it, some oil could be used for easy spreading.When that is done,put it on tawa-Baking plate, and bake it on it openly. Put essential quantity of Ghee or groundnut oil,to see that it rises easily after baking.

And then,it is ready for eating.!

But don’t be hurry to prepare it . it cannot be so easily prepared just by reading articles like this. Some coaching from the known people , is is little bit strainsome. But not difficult to learn. Still more easy to eat!

It can also be prepared by using cocconut cream. instead of dal.

Anybody who visit Indian friends’house during a festive occasion ,may get a chance to eat holige- a pure vegetarian sweet dish. Many Indians living abroad, also know its preparation.

      Thanks to both of you.I appreciate Bkcreative's interest in holige and i am happy that he often consumes it. I hope he spreads the taste to his friends also.

      As far as Mr.Rathnaveera is concerned, he knows equally well about this, as he is also an Indian and sees its preparation and consumption at his home and everywhere. His points are also correct
