  1. Soak the almonds in 1 cup of water for 3 to 4 hours

Making the dough:

  1. In a bowl mix maida, rave, turmeric powder. Then add water little by little and mix
  2. For the consistency of the dough please watch the video, I have used 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp of water
  3. add 1 to 1.5 tbsp oil on top of the dough, cover it and keep it aside for a minimum 3 hours. The more you soak the dough, the hoLige will be good

Preparing the filling:

  2. Grind the almonds with coconut, cardamom, kesari. Then add jaggery and grind it to a fine powder, DO NOT add Water to grind.
  3. Transfer this to a bowl.

  2. Grease and heat the tava on medium low heat
  3. You can divide the dough into 10 or 12 equal parts, take a portion of the dough, flatten out as shown in the video.
  4. Then place the filling and cover it as shown.
  5. Dip in the dry flour and roll it on a plastic sheet or banana leaf as shown,
  6. Transfer the holige onto the tava, put some oil or ghee on top. Let it cook
  7. Meanwhile prepare the other holige and keep it ready
  8. Flip the holige and let it cook on the other side as well
  9. Once it is cooked well on the other side,, remove it from the tava and transfer this to a plate.
  10. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining dough and filling
