Bobattalu Preparation :-

1) Divide the dough into equal portions, roughly the size of a golf ball.

2) Roll a ball with the help of a little whole wheat flour into a small circle to prevent the ball from sticking to the rolling surface.

3) Now spoon some of the coconut / Kobbari filling into the center of this circle. Fold the edges of the circle and pinch together to seal.

4)Flatten this new ball gently with your fingers and use a rolling pin and gentle, circular pressure to roll it like chapati.
5)Do this with all the dough and coconut /Kobbari filling.
6) This can get very tricky as the filling does try to slide out. Use a little flour if that happens. Roll.

7)  Roast each poli / bobbattu on a hot girdle with  ghee. Roast both sides till well done and aromatic and it gets golden brown color.

8) Smear with ghee on both sides when done.

9) Serve hot /cold .
