BILI HOLIGE / STUFFED RICE FLOUR PARATHA – KARNATAKA RECIPES

how to do bili holige

Hmm… life was very hectic lastweek . Festivals and other stuff forcefully kept me away from blog for more than a week . Back today with yet another Karnataka special dish which is not a very common dish . They are “ Bili Holige / Stuffed Rice flour Paratha ” . Bili in kannada means white and holige is pooran poli . Unlike traditional pooran polis , these bili holiges are not sweet ones but savory variety . The outer cover is typically made of maida hence the name white colored and the filling is made from rice flour and later rolled like normal paratha. So for better understandment , one can call it as Rice flour stuffed paratha . Hot hot soft soft bili holige served with ennegai palya or any other spicy curry or chutney … taste just awesome. Yes a bit time consuming to make , but the end result is worth it . Do give a try for your weekend breakfast or lunch and you will surely agree with me… Tummy full dil bhi khush….

Recipe Notes

NOTE:

  1. If you want you can flavour up the stuffing by adding green chilly + ginger / Palak puree / Methi leaves / coriander leaves etc
  2. Instead of maida , you can make the outer covering all wheat flour or use 1 cup maida n 1 cup wheat flour.
  3. Knead the rice flour stuffing when it is hot / warm only . If you knead after it cools , you will not be able to make a smooth lumpless dough .
  4. Since we are kneading the dough when its hot only , it would be difficult for us to handle the dough bear hands. Thats why we are putting it in polythene cover and knead later .
