🌿 Bisi bele bhath – rice, toor dal, veggies cooked with freshly ground spices and finished with generous helping of ghee

🌿 Kosambari – bengal gram and cucumber salad. I have shared the recipe for carrot kosambari. This is prepared the same way
🌿 Karjikai – deep fried dumplings with a filling of coconut, sugar and nuts
🌿 Holige – (Puranpoli/obattu) These lentil stuffed flatbreads are an absolute must at my home for this occasion. Bengal gram sweetened with jaggery is used as the stuffing. Enjoy hot holige by smearing a dollop of ghee (clarified butter) and warm milk
