Besan Holige

Basically this is my mothers recipe and it's one of my most liked holige.Very simple and effortless traditional sweet recipe.Its a Gram Flour/Besan combined with powdered sugar and melted ghee for stuffing.Will explain you more below..!!

Step 1 :

1 1/2 Cups of Wheat Flour
1/8 tsp of Turmeric Powder
Water & Oil as needed to the dough

Step 2 :
For Stuffing:

Besan 1 cup
Powdered Sugar 1 1/2 Cup
Melted Ghee 1/2 Cup To 3/4 Cup
Roasted Poppy Seeds 1/4 tsp
Cardamom powder 1/2 Tsp
Wheat Flour 1 Tbsp


First follow the step 1 procedure,make a chapathi like dough by adding turmeric powder,oil and water as mentioned earlier.The dough should be soft enough.

Next in a mixing bowl,add all the step 2 items mentioned above without adding water.Hint(So typically it should like the besan Ladoo mixture).

Next with the help of a rolling pin,make poori size from the chapathi dough.For dusting use rice flour.Stuff the besan mixture of lemon size and close the dough and again roll it into chapathi size.Dont roll into too thin as it may tear up.

Heat the non stick pan to low to medium heat,gently roast it on both the sides by the touch of little oil.Applying more oil will tear up the holige.

That's it you're done.! Enjoy the taste..
