Dessert : Bobbattu

Number of servings: 10

Known as “bobbbattu” in Andhra Pradesh, “poli” in Tamil Nadu, “holige” in Karnataka, and “Puran Puri” in North India, this is one of the most loved sweets in India. Though a little tedious to make, its one of the most prepared dishes for any occasion.  

List of ingredients:
1 cup maida  
¼ cup wheat flour  
1 cup oil  
1 ½ cups chana dal (senaga pappu)  
3 cups sugar  

Cooking procedure
Make a dough with the maida, wheat flour and oil. Add water if necessary. The dough should have an elastic like tendency. Cover and keep for about 1 or 2 hours.

Meanwhile, pressure cook the chana dal till done. Drain any excess water (this water can be used to making pappu kattu charu). Put this pappu in a mixie and puree it, along with the sugar. You can add elaichi powder if you want to. Keep aside.

Divide the maida dough into small balls, and do the same with the dal, make sure you have equal no.of balls. Take a banana leaf / milk packet / Ziploc bag; apply oil on one side. Take the maida ball and spread it to form a chapatti. Now place the dal laddu in the center and wrap it up with the maida chapatti, making sure the entire dal is covered. Now adding more oil if needed, flatten it to form a thick chapatti. Try to make sure it is of the same thickness throughout. Now cook this on a chapatti pan. Add a little oil if required. Do this for the rest of the maida and dal. Well your bobbattus are ready. You can serve them hot or cold. While serving you can spread some hot ghee over it. It will give it a lovely flavour.
Storage tips:
Will stay nice for about 2 – 3 days. After that refrigeration is required.
