Bobbatlu (Bhakshalu) and Awards

Our blogger friend, Nithya Praveen of has passed me these awards...Thank you Nithya:) And I am passing these awards to all my blogger friends...

What you need:

For making dough:
Maida or plain flour-2 cups
Sugar-1 teaspoon
Salt-a pinch
Turmeric powder-1/4 teaspoon
Ghee-2 tablespoons

Mix above ingredients in a big bowl and make it into a soft dough. Pour 1-2 tablespoons ghee on it and keep it aside for half an hour.

For sweet stuffing:
Gram dal or chana dal-1 cup
Grated jaggery-1/2 cup
Cardamom powder-1 teaspoon

Cook the gram dal until it becomes a bit soft and drain the water. Transfer it into a mixer jar after it cools down and add the grated jaggery and cardamom powder to it. Grind it into a paste without using any water.

How to make:

Divide the dough into lemon sized balls and pat them into circular shapes on a plastic sheet. Take a small ball of sweet stuffing and put it inside the circular patted dough. Carefully wrap the stuffing with the patted dough. Pat it again into a bigger circle using oil. Heat a pan and roast the circles on both sides using 1 tablespoon of oil. After removing them from the pan, spread them out separately (do not keep them on a pile when they are hot). Once they cool down, store them in a container. They will keep 2-3 days. Before eating add one teaspoon of melted ghee on them…
