Ugadi Pachadi
 Ugadi Pachadi

Bobbatlu

Ingredients

 

125 gm chana dal
150 gm jaggery
250 gm maida
Refined oil, pinch of salt
½ tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp ghee

Method

Cook chana dal with a cup of water in a pressure cooker till it becomes soft. Grind to a fine paste. Heat a pan and add the dal paste and jaggery and cook till they blend and form a lump so that you can prepare small balls. Add cardamom powder and a pinch of salt and mix well. Mix refined flour, pinch of salt, 2 tbsp oil and enough water to make a soft and sticky dough. Knead well. Grease hands with oil to knead the dough and take a small portion of dough and flatten it into a disc the size of your palm. Place a ball of the sweet lentil ball in the centre and draw the edges of the dough from all sides to cover it completely.

Gently flatten each ball carefully with your fingers to form a six inch diameter flat circular bobbatlu (grease hands while flattening). Fry on low flame on a hot griddle or tawa. Roast both sides till brown spots appear. Smear with ghee on both sides when done.
