Masala Bili Holige!

Blogging a recipe after a very long time! Last night we had Masala Bili holige and Palak Paneer. I have already blogged how to make Palak Paneer so we will just talk about how to make Masala Bili holige here.. This is a nice variation to the normal rotis / chapathis we make.

You Need:
For making dough (kanaka)
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Salt
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Water

For making the stuffing (Hoorana)
Rice flour - 1 cup
Salt
Usal Pudi (or any masala powder you have) - 1 tbsp
Water

Method:
Mix wheat flour, salt, ghee with your fingers.
Add milk and knead.
Add little water and knead your dough
The consistency should be that of chapati dough
Keep it aside for 15 mins.

Now bring 1.75 cups of water to boil
Add salt
Add rice flour slowly
Mix well and stirring vigorously

Once the mixture solidifies remove from flame and keep it to cool.
After 10 mins, take it on a flat surface, add the usal pudi.
Wet your hands with water / oil and knead the flour till the powder is mixed in.
Make lemon sized balls and keep aside.

Take the chapati dough and make lemon sized balls.
Take a ball, roll it out a little so you get thinner edges and a fatter centre
Keep the rice ball in the centre fold the chapati dough around it to ensure no stuffing comes out.
Roll out the chapati.
Heat the tawa
Add a little oil / ghee (optional)
Cook the chapati on both sides
serve it with curd or any subzi you like

We had ours with Palak Paneer :)


Note: I got my usal powder from Kusuma Aunty
