HOW TO MAKE KADALE BELE OBBATTU ( BOBATTALU)?
KADALE BELE OBBATTU- A TRADITIONAL CLASSIC RECIPE WITH CHANNA DAL AND JAGGERY FILLING.
Kadale bele obbattu is a mandatory recipe for Ugadi, which is the new year day for Telugu and Kannada speaking people. This is also called as Puran poli in Maharashtra and paruppu boli (poli) in Tamil Nadu. Many people believe that making kadale bele obbattu is a tricky business.
Well, this is partly true. The trick to getting those flaky layers lies in the dough. It is also important that you get the filling cooked to the right consistency. Between coconut poli and kadale bele obbattu, i would say that bele obbattu is easier to make than the first. Also, please remember to use the indian Maida flour for this recipe. All purpose flour may not work as well as maida in kadale bele obbattu.
