  • Boil dal in plenty of water till soft but not broken. Drain in a colander for 10-15 minutes.
  • Pass through an almond grater little by little till all dal is grated.
  • Mash jaggery till the lumps break.
  • Mix together the dal and the jaggery.
  • Put the mixture in a heavy saucepan and cook till a soft lump is formed. Take care to stir continuously, so as not to charr. Keep it aside.
  • Mix together ghee, flour and enough water to make a soft pliable dough.
  • Take a morsel sized ball of the dough and roll into a 4" round.
  • Place same sized ball of filling in the centre, lift all round and seal the edges.
  • Reroll carefully to a 6" diameter round.
  • Roast on warm griddle till golden brown.
  • Repeat on the other side.
  • Take it on a serving plate and apply a tsp of ghee all over the top. Or you can shallow fry on griddle like a paratha for a better flavour. But this method will consume more ghee and therefore calories.
  • :- Serve hot with dal or amti.
