How to Make Plain Bobbatlu

  • Wash the dal and cook it with just enough water. Dal must be cooked very well.
  • Mix together the maida, wheat flour and a pinch of salt with some water.
  • Make a hard dough of it and knead it by adding oil slowly till the dough becomes very soft and pliable.
  • Keep it covered for about 2 hours.
  • Take the cooked dal and drain out any extra water in it. Mash it well or put it in a blender and mix it with sugar/jaggery and a pinch of salt.
  • Heat the mixture on low flame till it is almost dry.
  • Let it cool and then add powdered cardamom to make it into 10 or 12 equal-sized balls.
  • Knead the maida mixture and divide it into equal number of balls.
  • Take a plastic sheet and put a few drops of oil and spread the maida ball on it with hand. The ball should be thin at the edges and thick in the middle.
  • Put the sweet ball in the middle and cover it by bringing the edges together.
  • Repeat the procedure for all the balls.
