HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaiian Word of the Day is huli. Huli means to turn, reverse, or curl over. The local favorite, hulihuli chicken takes its name from the Hawaiian word for "turn" because while roasting, the chicken is turned back and forth several times, similar to a rotisserie. The word huli is also used to describe a portion of the stem of a taro plant, which is replanted after its initial harvesting. This replanting process makes taro an extremely sustainable agricultural product. The Hawaiian Word of the Day is huli.
