Patholi /Arasina yele kadubu

Patholi is a sweet dish prepared during occasions like Ganesh chathurti, Naagarpanchmi etc. Patholi is mostly prepared in Mangalore side especially by Konkani community.   Its a very healthy dish and no oil is used because its steamed. its   steamed in turmeric leaves(haldi paan in Konkani) for getting rich aroma of turmeric. So it has a very special flavour.

If we don’t get turmeric leaves we can steam it in banana leaves also.  Here I am showing the step by step method of preparing patholi
White rice                                 1  cup
Beaten rice flakes                    2 handful
Grated coconut                         ¼ cup
Pinch of salt

Grated jaggery                            ¼ cup
