I guess we all get little excited buzz through our body when the festival is around. After all we Indians are festive people who look for celebrations in every event of life. And it is actually a need of the day as festival connects every one in the family through rituals. So lets welcome this festival vibes and enjoy the warmth of YUGADI through FOOD. What say? Because we are twins when it comes to food and this incredible peanuts poli (Shenga holige) is undoubtedly apt recipe for the occasion.
I had plans to post this recipe ahead of this BIG DAY so that all wonderful women out there can plan their cooking accordingly. But due to some weird twist of events, I am posting the recipe late by a day. But you are awesome on that part of the story and surely overlook the issue. Isn’t it?
Let me define peanuts poli (Shenga holige) in simpe terms. It’s a flatbread that tastes sweet having peanuts plus jaggery as it’s stuffing. Cute little peanuts when roasted and skinned off, become flavorful. And when you are in the process of roasting, your home smells in a good way. Kids who are out in the living room and hardly have any interest in cooking, do peep in to check what’s being cooked. And it happened with me. Their eagerness of eating this awesome sweet thing kept me on my toes. And I loved the process totally.
The best part of peanuts poli is it’s shelf life. You can make these flatbread before hand and store for a week also. The left overs taste way more tastier too. When you have to travel for few days and you prefer eating home made food, then this poli can come handy. Love, love this yumminess!!
