With the commencement of the holy month of Shravan, many auspicious days and festivals lay ahead. If the tuesdays and fridays are sacred, in between are the Nagara chauti, panchmi , raksha bandhan,  varmalakshmi  and krishna janmasthmi, so many tuned up, one needs to think of the different sweets that can be prepared. Today, I am presenting to you shenga holige/peanut sweet pancake. Shenga is peanut or groundnut and holige is a stuffed sweet bread or pancake.

Shenga holige is a popular sweet of North Karnataka. It  can be stored for a few days. It is tasty and muchloved by kids, as it can be eaten just like that, no need of milk or  even ghee. This post is part of  Culinary Hoppers with the theme “Sweets “. Let’s get cooking in steps.

    The sweet peanut pancake is truly delicious. In fact the filling is so yummm that if you were making it in my presence then most of the filling I would have eaten even before it could make its way into the pancake. Lovely sweet dear. Very nice.

    Hi Jayashree,
    This is the most commonly made sweet in North Karnataka, especially in villages. We pack and take if we are visiting someone’s house, or for festival or just like that. My favourite poli. I too have it in my blog. But your pictures speak perfect recipe. Thank you.
