Patolleo or Patoleo, pronounced at pathayo, is a Goan sweet prepared for the feast of the Assumption of Mary. The time when the first corn is offered for a good harvesting season. Lets learn how to make the Patoleo!
1/4 kg Goa red rice, or boiled rice (big fat unpolished rice)
1/2 a Coconut grated
1 Teaspoon salt
2 Small Pyramids Goa Jaggery
Turmeric Leaves also known as Haldi Ka Patta
3/4th Cup Water
The Patoleos have to be cooked for around twenty minutes in the steamer before they are done.
This is what comes out of the steamer after twenty minutes.
The leaves give the rice a lovely flavor and the jaggery with coconut makes the patoleo sweet and wholesome, can also be made as a tea time snack 🙂
