This is a typical Andhra sweet made on special occasions..

Ingredients :

For Stuffing:
1 Cup Bengal gram dal (chana dal)

1 and 1/2 cups jaggery powdered (adjust according to taste)

8 Cardamoms

For cover:

1/2 cup maida

1/2 cup wheat flour

1 cup oil

Method :

1.Wash dal and cook with just enough water. Dal must be cooked very well.

2.Mix maida, wheat flour and a pinch of salt adding water.

3.Make hard dough of it and knead it by adding oil (4 tablespoons) slowly till the dough becomes very soft and pliable.

4.Keep it covered for about 2 hours.

5.Take the cooked dal, drain out any extra water and put it in a blender and mix it with jaggery and a pinch of salt.

6.Heat the mixture on low flame till almost dry.

7.Cool it and add powdered cardamom and make it into 10 or 12 equal sized balls.

8.Knead the maida mixture and divide it into equal number of balls.

9.Take a plastic sheet or steel plate and put a few drops of oil and spread the maida ball on it with hand, thin at the edges and thick in the middle.

10.Put the sweet ball in the middle and cover it by bringing the edges together.

11.Repeat the procedure for all the balls.

12.Flatten each ball with hand into 6" to 8" diameter flat circular chapati carefully with the help of a few drops of oil and fry it on low flame on tava.

This is a very tasty sweet and u can also add grated coconut to the stuffing.If u r feeling tough to roll with hands u can roll it with a rolling pin ,dabbing of wheat flour on the chapati so the dough doesn't stick to the pin and expose the stuffing.
