Holige/Obbattu/Poorann Poli/ Boli is a sweet dish which is normally done during the festival/feast time. Holige is stuffed in sweet Hooran (inside content) and covered with maida/wheat flour. You can simply say it is sweet chapati. Every one love to have Holige. It is one of my favourite dish and I try to do with healthy ingredients.

Things Needed :
Coconut : 1
Jaggery : 1 1/2 cup ( grated )
Cardamom : 5 to 6 seeds ( Powdered )
Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Thin Semolina : 1/2 Cup
Water : 1/2 cup
Oil : 1 Cup
Salt : a pinch

Method :
Mix Maida and Samolina with sufficient water and prepare dough. ( Like Chapati dough consistency). Soak the dough in 1/2 cup of oil. Leave it for 3 to 4 hours.
Dry grind coconut and powder the cardamom. Keep a pan on the fire and put jaggary . Add coconut and stir the mixture. Let them mix well . When it is mixed well remove from the pan and add cardamom. So the aroma of cardamom remains freshly.

Now take maida dough make small balls like chapati balls. Take each ball of dough and flatten it from the roller. Add a spoonful of jaggery and coconut mixture and close it around. Dip the ball in a dry maida and roll them as chapatis.
Cook these chapatis one by one on the tava , adding oil on the top. The holige is ready to serve.

while preparing Hoorana ( coconut and jaggery mix ) do it on low flame. and it should not be too thick or too thin.. Let the water disappear from that mixture. When it is cool mix it well with your hand. You can also use plastic to flatten the chapati . Rub oil on the plastic before flattening the chapati that it does not get stuck in plastic.

15 Holiges can be made.
