Have you ever imagined yourself eating a fresh hot Holige with desi ghee on top of it? If you have never tried this tempting Karnataka sweet dish, then it’s better you should go and get a life. Holige or Obbattu is a traditional dish of Karnataka and popular street food in Bengaluru. Locally called bobbatlu or Puran poli, it is made of toor dal, jaggery, cardamom powder, flour, and rava.
It is one of the delicacies savored during festivals like Diwali and Ugadi or any other occasions. Holige is mainly served with a piping hot ghee poured on it. However, if you are looking forward to tasting this mouth-watering dish then come all the way to Mane Holige in Jayanagara. Indeed, if you love Holige then certainly this place has all those qualities to mesmerize you.
What do they Have?
The different varieties they serve here are amazing and with the live counter, one can watch the process of making this wonderful dish which is like magic. Starting off with the menu they have coconut holige, it is also called as Kayi holige where Kayi means coconut itself in Kannada. It’s thin, stiff yet very soft in texture. Literally, kayi holige looks very dry but it just melts in your mouth alongside clarified butter.
And don’t forget to try their Dal holige or generally called as Bele holige; ‘Bele’ translates to dal in the Kannada language. Chana dal and jaggery is used as a stuffing in this holige. This is one of the dishes we personally suggest you try.
There are also other Holiges you may try: khova holige, carrot holige, shengha holige, pineapple holige, badami holige, dry fruits holige, Gulkand holige, and anjura holige.
These dishes come in different sizes. One is the normal size which will cost you around 15 Rs and the bigger one comes for Rs. 5 extra.
On the other hand, they have their special Dates holige which is said to be very popular holige in this place. We don’t really need a reason to devour this beauty. This is a spin on the traditional holige replacing the Dal-jaggery filling with dates. Dates Holige is a classic dish prepared with fresh dates and coconut; absolutely innovative and delicious.
They also serve sugar-free Holiges which is an add-on advantage here. Besides, the most interesting thing about this place is, they have a live kitchen where customer can literally see how the holige is, made with around 4 staff cooking together. You can take away or just eat standing in front of the place witnessing all the hustle and bustle of 4th block.
