Kobbari Sakkare Holige

I would like to share kobbari sakkare holige..

Few facts about this holige :
1. Easy to make
2. Less preparation required
3. They must be consumend when hot. Please do not keep them as they tend to become dry. Unless you like to eat that way!

What you need:
1. Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 1 cup
2. Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup (adjust sweet levles according to you taste)
3. Dessicated dry coconut (powdered dry coconut)-1/2 cup
4. Milk - 3-4tbsp
5. Oil
6. Water
1. Mix maida with water to make a very soft dough. Add oil on the dough and leave it aside. It looks like this:

Mix, grated coconut, sugar with 1-2 tbsp milk. If you need more milk, add little at a time and mix. It should look like this :

Make small balls.

For making holige, take a plastic coated paper and oil the surface. Oil the rolling pin. Take a small lemon sized maida and pat it on the paper. Roll it to have a small circle. Keep the sugar-coconut mixture in between. Close it from all sides. Roll it to make holige and transfer it to the hot pan along with the paper. Slowly remove the paper. Fry with oil on both the sides and remove it to a serving plate. Eat hot with ghee/milk.

On other note, Pratibha of The Chef and Her Kitchen tagged me for 7 links game. I went back to search the post thinking that it was only 2 weeks ago that she tagged me. I realised that it has already been more than 4 weeks since she tagged :P Ok, here I go about telling the 7 links of my blog...

My Most Beautifull Post : There are many! It would be unfair to pick any one of them.
I pick a sweet made on Varamahalakshmi vrata, Hayagreeva

What is most beautiful about this? It is the sweet itself and many memories attached to it. We loved it as children and my mom loved it too.
My Most Popular Post : Well, popularity has varied with times. But, most of the times my google side bar of 'most popular post' shows Vangibath Powder and Vangibath. So, I go with google... Well, there is no good picture of it though. Sometimes, recipe speaks better than picture and this is a good example.
The post I am most proud of: It would be good to say it this way: The post that made me proud of by the feedback of readers : Vadappi/Akki hittu poori. Again, recipe speaks more than picture.
Most Useful Post: There are many. From stotras to mantras to many readers requested recipes. Navaratri Festive Food Round up was liked by most of my subscribers.
Surprise Success Post: Rave Pongal

Most Controversial Post : None
Post Which requires most attention : Please revisit all the recipes, whenever you get time!!! ehehehee...

Have a fantastic Deepavali. Not sure when will I get time to blog again, till then take care and eat well.
