coconut holige / kaayi holige

Coconut holige / kaayi holige

In havyaka cuisine, sweet dishes are more common. Commonly prepared sweet dishes are avalakki manohara, kayi sukkinunde, , jack fruit idli/halasina hannina idli, kadle maddi/hayagriva, gensle/genasele and kashi halwa/ash gourd halva etc.

Another similar havyaka recipe is chana dal holige/obbattu/kadlebele holige. The difference is the filling or hoorna. Here we use coconut instead of chana dal/ kadle bele. Time for preparing coconut holige / kaayi holige is less than preparing kadlebele holige. 

Coconut holige/kaayi holige is prepared during special occasions especially in festivals like Ganesh chaturthi, yugadi, and nagara panchami.
