Strawberry Paratha/Puran poli/Holige – 200th Recipe
Today is Vara Mahalakshmi festival celebrated across south india. God’s grace this coincides as my 200th recipe as well to this blog. To celebrate the festival and also the milestone presenting this unique sweet dish.
This recipe is similar to puran poli/holige which just looks like any other roti. This is stuffed with delicious sweet filling made of fresh strawberry mixed with semolina/rava and brown sugar. The stuffing can be made in many variations as per the taste and preference.
Rawa kesari is a popular south indian sweet made from semolina during the festive season. Using strawberries to the traditional rawa kesari adds a pleasant fruity flavour with the dark pinkish hue. This is used as stuffing to Parathas.
This paratha/poli by itself is a delicious sweet and often eaten as such or it can be served with a spoon full of nuts, dallop of ice cream/ cream to serve as a dessert.
Preparation time: 5minutes
Cooking time: 20-25 mins (for stuffing)
20-25mins (for roasting parathas)
