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.

If we don’t get turmeric leaves we can steam it in banana leaves also.  Here I am showing the step by step method of preparing patholi


  • Raw rice  – 1  cup
  • Beaten rice flakes –  2 handful
  • Grated coconut –  ¼ cup
  • Pinch of salt

For filling-

  • Grated coconut   – ½ cup
  • Grated jaggery   –   ¼ cup
  1. Soak rice for 1 hour then grind it with beaten rice and grated coconut into fine thick paste.
  2. Wash and clean turmeric leaves and spread them on a table.
  3. Spread the mixture of rice and coconut on the turmeric leaves
  1. Mix grated coconut and jaggery.  Then spread this mixture on the already spread rice mixture on the leaves.
  2. Then fold the leaves.
  3. Steam it in a steamer for 15 to 20 minutes
