BM #84 Week 1 Day 1 - 

Wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!!

To begin the year with a sweet flatbread was more of a coincidence than a planned post. I have chosen to highlight some sweet flatbreadsThis pineapple flavored bobbattu/poli/sweet flatbread is perfect for any auspicious or casual occasion.

Pineapple essence can also be used to enhance the pineapple flavor. But I typically don't use any artificial colors/essence, so skipped it.
Recipe Source a TV program
Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Salt 1/4 tsp 
Warm Water as needed to knead a soft dough
Ghee/Oil for cooking as needed
For the filling - 
Wheat Rava 1/2 cup (I used the fine variety)
Butter 4 Tbsp
Sugar 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp
*Pineapple Puree 1/2 cup

*I used canned pineapple and pureed it along with the juice.

Method Of Preparation -
To Prepare the filling - 
In a heated non stick pan, add 2 tablespoons of butter and roast the wheat rava until aromatic (about 3-4 minutes). Remove onto a plate and set aside.

In the same heated pan add 1/2 tsp of butter and pour in the pineapple puree. Cook the pineapple puree until it comes together.

Add in the remaining butter and the roasted wheat rava.

Add in a little more than 1 cup of hot water. Mix well so that there are no lumps. Reduce the heat and allow the wheat rava to cook well.

After the wheat rava is cooked well, sprinkle the sugar and mix well. 

Keep mixing until the halwa comes together as a single mass and doesn't stick to the pan.

Remove from heat and allow it cool.

To make the Bobbattu -  
In a mixing bowl, knead the whole wheat flour with water and a little salt into a soft dough and keep it covered for 10-15 min.

Divide the dough into equal parts (about 8-9) and roll each portion of the dough into small circles. Put in at least a teaspoon of filling and close the edges.

Roll out this ball into a thin circle like a roti making sure that the filling doesn't ooze out. Also carefully roll it so the filling spreads out evenly. [I used a puri press/tortilla press to make it simple instead of rolling it out :)]

Gently place it on a heated tawa/griddle, drizzle a little ghee/oil and cook until both the sides are light brown. 

Remove the bobbattu from the tawa. Store in an insulated container.

Continue with the rest of the dough. Serve them warm and enjoy!
