Patholi is a sweet dish prepared during occasions like Ganesh chathurti, Naagarpanchmi etc. Patholi is mostly prepared in Mangalore side especially by Konkani community. Its a very healthy dish and no oil is used because its steamed. its steamed in turmeric leaves(haldi paan in Konkani) for getting rich aroma of turmeric. So it has a very special flavour.
