Obattu for Ugadi

Ugadi festival is around the corner and Obattu is the special dish prepared for the occassion.


1 cup grated coconut
1/2 cup grated jaggery
Cardamom powder
1 cup maida
A pinch of salt
A pinch of turmeric powder
4 tsp oil

Make a soft dough of maida, salt, turmeric powder with water. Add oil and knead it well. Keep it covered for about 20 to 30 minutes. Heat the grated jaggery with very little water and when it starts becoming thick, add the coconut and cardamom powder and mix well. Cool for some time and make small balls of it.

Take a medium sized ball of maida dough, roll out into small puri and place the ball of filling in the center. Close with maida dough from sides and roll out into a chapatis, ensuring the filling doesnt come out. Cook them on a medium hot tava till you get brown spots on both sides.

Serve with some ghee.
