- wheat flour - 1 cup
- Water - as required to knead the dough
- salt - 1 tsp
- Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
- Sugar or powdered jaggery - 3 tbsp
- Ghee - 2 tsp
- Cardamom powder - 1tsp (optional)
Mix first three ingredients and make chappathi dough out of it.
Roll out small rotis like poori's from chappathi dough.
In a tbsp of ghee, stir fry the grated coconut for a while in med flame till nice smell of coconut comes.
Add sugar and cardamom pwdr mix well, switch off the flame. Fill the rolled roti with a tbsp each of this filling, fold into half and close the edges. Either deep fry it(i remember eating it deep fried in my school days) or add a spoon of ghee to the non-stick pan and cook both sides till done.
I used ghee for my kiddos and made it without any oil and ghee in a non-stick for myself and husband...
I swear this is really an awesome snack for kids, they will love it...
