Sugar filled crispy Indian bread. Sakkare Holige dish is very popular in Karnataka during festivals, weddings etc. My mother learnt this recipe from her mother-in-law who was very good at preparing this dish. This is also known as obbattu and puran poli.
Time Required: 40 Minutes + Soaking time
1 Cup Sugar Powder
1tsp Elaichi / Cardamom Powder
1tsp Gasagase / Poppy Seeds (Fried and Powdered)
½ Cup grated Dry Coconut or Fresh Coconut (Powdered)
¾ Cup Chiroti Rawa / Fine Semolina
¾ Cup Maida / Refined Flour
1tbsp Ghee / Clarified Butter
Mix Sugar, Elaichi, Gasagase, Coconut and ½ tbsp Ghee dd more Ghee if needed and knead to a soft dough, a teaspoon of milk can also be used.
For the outer layer:
In a mixing bowl, add Rawa and Maida, mix well. Add water to make a soft dough. Leave it aside for an hour.
For making Holige:
Divide the rawa-maida and sugar dough into small balls.
Press a rawa-maida dough ball lightly to make a depression. Keep a sugar ball over it.
Cover the sugar ball with the rawa-maida dough.
On a greased aluminum foil or a banana leaf press the ball using the rolling pin gently into a concentric circle.
Roast Sakkare – Sugar Holige on both sides and remove.
I made sakkare obbattu yesterday,it turned out too crispy and I was checking for an alternative method and found you.I have some doubts in the recipe:
1)You mention sesame seeds for the hoorana,did you mean gasagase.
2)In the ingredients list there is 3/4 th cup maida.You have not added to the kanaka.Now,do you add it or not.I tried with 1:1 maida,chiroti rave.is it the same as yours.
3)Should i put all the hoorna mixture in the mixie?
Please ,oh Please do clarify.I love obbattus all of them — bele ,kayi and sakkare.
thansk and regards,
Thanks for pointing out the typos, I have corrected in the post, please check out. Sakkara Holige always comes out crisp.
There is no need to grind the hoorana as you are adding powdered sugar and powdered dry coconut. But if you want to, you can grind it in the grinder together.
Hope this helps…
New to me…Will try this out.. 🙂
