Sajjaka Holige/Rava Obbattu/Semolina Poli

My today's post is from Northern part of Karnataka, this rava obbattu aka Sajjaka holige is quite popular there. Prepared with a simple rava and jaggery stuffing, this sweet flatbread will definitely please anyone's sweet tooth. And this sweet is made during the Dusshera/Dasara festival season. With a simple wheat chappathi dough, i prepared quickly this sweet poli and this dish tastes absolutely fabulous to enjoy with a mug of spiced black tea.

Rava Jaggery Poli, Sajjaka Holige

These sweet parathas turned out extremely light,filling also at the same time an excellent tea time snack. This sweet paratha may sounds exactly like our famous kesari poli. The dough usually we make puran polis goes for all purpose flour aka maida. Here i completely skipped maida and went for whole wheat flour. Since i cooked this parathas in a non stick pan, these parathas are completely oil free, in case if you want to drizzle some oil or ghee, just go as you desire.This Sajjaka Holige is going for this week's blogging marathon as am runningwith Sweet flatbread as theme.

Sajjaka Holige, Rava Poli

2cups Wheat flour
Warm water (for kneading)
1/2cup Semolina
1/2cup Jaggery
1/2tsp Cardamom powder

Heat the jaggery with a cup of water, once the jaggery gets melts, add the semolina and cook until the mixture turns thick and semolina gets cooked. Add the cardamom powder and give a stir. 

Keep aside and let it cool completely.

Take the wheat flour,salt in a large bowl, add the warm water slowly and knead everything as a soft dough and keep side for an hour.

Make 6-7small balls from the rava-jaggery mixture and keep aside.

Also make 6-7 medium sized balls from the wheat dough.

Flatten the wheat balls as medium sized circles,place the small ball of  rava-jaggery mixture inside the circle and close the edges of the dough completely.

Dust with some flour and roll it gently as medium sized parathas.

Heat a non stick pan in medium flame,once the pan is hot,drop gently the already prepared parathas and cook both sides until they get well cooked on both sides.

Enjoy with a cup of tea.
