1 c. all purpose flour 1/4 c. coconut (shredded) 1/4 c. water 15 cardamom 1/4 c. oil 1 c. chana dhal 1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/8 c. brown sugar
Combine flour, water, oil and salt to make the dough and make it into small round balls of 15. Boil dhal with 3 cups of water and strain the water. Spread the dhal on a plate to be aired, for a few seconds.
Ground dhal and brown sugar without adding water. Saute shredded coconut, with 1 teaspoon of butter. Mix that and cardamom with the ground dhal. Make the dhal paste into 14 balls. With hand, flatten all purpose flour dough into a small circle of 2 inches in diameter. Set the ball of Channa dhal in the middle and fold the circle and cover the ball with the dough. With hand, flatten out this ball into a circle of 4 inches in diameter. Heat an iron griddle over medium heat. Brush it with butter and place the round pastry on it. When one side becomes golden brown, turn it over for the other side to become golden brown. Very good to eat when hot.
