  • Mix chiroti rava, maida, salt, turmeric powder with a tablespoon of groundnut oil in a bowl.
  • Add water and make dough kneading well. It should be soft like paratha dough.
  • Let it rest for about half an hour.
  • Dry roast semolina for just 2-3 minutes. Don't over roast it.
  • In a thick bottomed kadai, boil the water and add Bombay rava. Cook it on low heat.
  • When it's cooked, add jaggery and elaichi powder and cook further to make sajjige or sheera and add the ghee.
  • Set the cooked sajjige - sheera aside and let it cool completely.
  • Make small balls of the cooled sajjige.
  • Now knead the dough and make small balls from the chiroti rava dough and roll them round. Here if you think the dough is tight, you may add a few spoons of water and knead it to make it soft.
  • In the rolled dough, put a sheera ball and cover it around the way we do for parathas.
  • Cover it lightly with rice flour and set aside.
  • Like this make the obbattu balls from all the sajjige balls.
  • Heat the tava.
  • Lightly press the obbattu ball, and roll with chapati pin into round obbattu or puran poli using rice flour on both the sides.
  • Now put the obbattu on the tava and cook it over medium heat putting a spoonful of groundnut oil on both the sides.
  • Do obbattus like this with all other balls.
  • Serve hot with ghee.
  • They taste equally light and tasty even when they are cold and also on the next day, provided there are any leftovers!

Happy cooking!
