Namadaholige/Naamadallige/Rice Burfi

Happy Maha Shivaratri to all of you..This is a simple and very rustic traditional sweet made out of rice and jaggery.I always loved sweets made out of jaggery than sugar ones because jaggery has more nutritional value compared to sugar.Naamadallige or naamadaholige is a rare traditional sweet used to prepare in olden days during Shivaratri festival  using Tambittu flour or roasted rice powder along with tambittu and other delicacies.I got this recipe from my maternal grandmother..She used to tell in olden days i mean 40-50years ago, when there were no bakeries,sweet shops etc people used to prepare simple and easy sweets and savouries for snacking  using the ingredients available at home.Naamdallige is one such easy and healthy sweet and can be consumed little more without feeling guilty.I dedicate this post to my grandmother who was a great cook. She is no more with us..but her words and recipes are still remembered with you ajji..miss u..
