WOW... Patholi... Its one of my favourite sweet dish..its very very special and it involves a lot of hard work to make..Its been a long time since i have tasted one... I remember I used to help Amma to make patholis by applying the rice paste and the churna.. and then help with finishing off the patholis very quick too.. :) When the patholis are steamed, the entire house smells of patholi.. Mayeka saang tine kellele patholi palounu tondantu udda aaile.. :)
Very good recipe Shwetha.. Thanks a lot..
