Kobbari Bhakshalu (Wheat flour tortillas stuffed with sweet filling)

This is a sweet dish synonymous with Bobbatlu, a traditional stuffed chapathi, but the fillings for stuffing are slightly different. I saw this simple recipe on Maa TV and tried it out. It truly is delllicious!!

Maida flour - 2 cups
Dry coconut powder - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Sesame seeds - 1/2 cup
Cashew powder - 1 tbsp
Elaichi - 3

1. In a bowl mix Maida with 1 tsp oil and water as needed, and knead into a soft dough.
2. Dry roast sesame seeds (raw is fine too). Make a powder of sesame seeds, cashews and elaichi. To this add coconut powder and sugar and mix.
3. Add about 1/4 cup milk to this mixture and mix well. Make small round balls and keep aside.
4. Roll the maida dough into small round patties. Flatten them a bit and place the ball in the middle and cover all sides with the dough. Roll the dough flat into a round like a chapathi.
5. Heat a tava and fry or cook them on medium heat while applying ghee on both sides.
Store in air-tight container or preferably, in the refrigerator.
