Bobbatlu/Puran Poli

Bobbatu/Puran Poli is a sweet bread that is popular across India. The fillings could be made of chana dal, moong dal or toor dal. The most popular filling in Andhra is chana dal mixed with Jaggery. I did not have jaggery and so I substituted Sugar which is equally tasty.

1 cup Chana Dal/Bengal Gram
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 /1 4 tsp Cardamom powder
1/2 tsp Nutmeg Powder

1 1/2 cups Maida (All Purpose flour)
1/4 to 1/2 cup Ghee
1/2 cup water
  • Mix the flour with the water and ghee as needed to form a smooth dough.Cover it and set aside for 2 hours
  • In the meantime, cook chana dal with 2 cups of water. If you are not pressure cooking, use more water as needed until the dal should is soft but not mushy.
  • Mix the sugar,cardamom and nutmeg into the cooked Dal.
  • Transfer into a pan and cook until it starts leaving the edges of the pan and becomes a paste
  • Let it cool down
  • Divide the Chana Dal mixture into 8-10 balls.
  • Divide the dough into 8-10 balls as well.
  • Flatten a dough ball into a small circle; Place Chana Dal ball on the circle. Cover the ball with the dough edges and seal it covering the chana dal ball completely.
  • Roll into a 6 inch diameter circle.
  • Heat a tawa/nonstick pan
  • Cook the bobbattu on both sides using a tsp of ghee.
  • Cook till brown spots appear like a chapathi
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
