Sajjige holige is a delicious, yummy sweet which is necessarily made on the day of Ananthapadmanabha vratha. Either sajjige holige or bele holige is made on that day. Sajjige is a kannada word which literally means sheera or sooji ka halwa made using jaggery. So sweet jaggery sheera is stuffed in whole wheat flour dough. On regular days also it can be made for lunch box or breakfast. It is a healthy dish with the goodness of whole wheat flour, wheat semolina, jaggery, dry coconut and almond.
