1 cup maida/all purpose flour
Bit of salt
1/2 cup grated dry coconut (kobari)
1/4 cup powder sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Oil to fry

Make a soft dough of maida, salt, 2 tsp oil and water. Let it stay covered for 1/2 hr. Mix the dry coconut, sugar, cardamom powder and keep aside.

Make small balls of the maida dough and roll out into small puris. Place 1 tsp of the coconut filling in one half of the puri and spread a drop of water in the corners. Fold the puri into half and press well. The water helps in binding it, ensuring that the filling doesnt come out. Turn the corners to get a pleated look like in the picture. Similarly make all the other pieces and fry them till crisp and cooked.

This is a very popular sweet prepared during Ganesh chaturthi in Karnataka.
