Moong dal-1 cup
Sugar-3/4 th cup
Maida-1 cup
Wheat flour-2 to 3 tsp
Oil-2 cups or more

1:How to cook the Dal:

Take deep bottomed pan and pour required amount of water to cook the moong dal.
When the water is boiling clean the moong dal and add to the boiling water.
Cook until the moong dal the dal forms split and the centre of the dal.
Thats the time to switch of the heat and drain the moong dal in the colander.(Dont throw away the water this we can use to prepare masala dal).
Leave the dal to rest and make it cool.

2:How to prepare Dough:

Take a mixing bowl to this add the maida,wheat flour,little sugar and little pinch salt whisk it well with whisker to mix all the dry ingredients.
Mix well with water to make dough.
The dough should not very hard it should be smooth.

3:How to prepare the stuffing:

In the mean time we have prepare sugar syrup.
Take another deep bottomed pan add the sugar and 3 tsp of water and make sugar syrup.
When the syrup is formed now add the cooked moong dal and mix well.Now take out from heat and make it cool.
After sometime the sugar syrup and dal mixture gets cool.
Add all the mixture to blender and blend to a smooth paste.(Dont add the water).We have to make like balls.
Now make the balls and keep it aside.

4:How to prepare the trays for Bobbattlu:

In India we use banana leaves for trays.Here i am using Aluminium foil.
Take any plates and cut the foil to the required size and cover the plate completely with aluminuim foil as i shown in the pic.

Now every thing is ready.Its the time to prepare the Bobbattlu.
Take the tray and apply 1 tsp oil and take required amount of dough and do as i showm in the pic.
Now place the stuffing and cover the stuffing completely with the dough.
Now press the ball with ur four fingers from the centre like clockwise here the centre and edges should be thin as shown in the picture.
Do all the balls like that and keep it aside.Finally little oil will be left this can be reuse.
Now place the pan and heat it.
When it gets heat now slowly take the bobbattlu with the help of spatula as shown in the pic.
Fry this by applying little ghee.
Fry this on both sides.and transfer to the plate.
Do all like this.
Serve this in hot.
This is the best sweet in Andhra.
