This is one of the most common Indian Recipe. Called by different names Holige, Obbattu, Pooran Poli ...
My Favourite too.

Ingredients :
  • Channa dal /kadale bele 1 cup
  • Sugar or jaggery  1cup
  • Cardamom powder 1tsp
  • Plain flour/maida  1 ½ cup
  • Rice flour 1tsp
  • Semolina /rava 1tsp
  • Turmeric pinch
  • Salt
  • Oil

  • Mix Plain flour(maida), rice flour,  semolina, turmeric and salt. Add water,oil(4tsp) and make a smooth dough. Cover and keep it aside for 20mins. (This mixture is called “Kanaka” in Kannada).
  •  Boil channa dal, wait for it to cool down. Press out the water, add it to the mixi and powder it.
  •  Take heavy bottomed pan, add  powdered channa dal and jaggery.
  •  Boil this mixture for 10-15minutes. Keep stirring  while you boil this.
  •  Let it cool down. Add cardamom and mix well with hand to get a smooth mixture. (This mixture is called “Hoorana” in Kannada).

  • Take a ball of dough(Kanaka) and spread it with hand. Keep a ball of chana mixture(Hoorana) and cover  it with dough and seal the ends.
  •  Apply oil to a plastic paper, keep so prepared  ball on it and roll it like chapathi (The plastic and oil prevents it from sticking). Fry on hot tava till it gets golden brown colour.
  • Serve hot/cold with ghee and sugar syrup
Important Note: Don't serve with ghee when I visit your home as I don't eat ghee or butter  :)
