Step 1

Boil dal in plenty of water till soft but not broken. Drain in a colander for 10-15 minutes.

Step 2

Pass through an almond grater little by little till all dal is grated.

Step 3

Mash jaggery till the lumps break.

Step 4

Mix together the dal and the jaggery.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Mix together ghee, flour and enough water to make a soft pliable dough.

Step 7

Take a morsel sized ball of the dough and roll into a 4" round.

Step 8

Place same sized ball of filling in the centre, lift all round and seal the edges.

Step 9

Reroll carefully to a 6" diameter round.

Step 10

Roast on warm griddle till golden brown.

Step 11

Repeat on the other side.

Step 12

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.

Step 13

:- Serve hot with dal or amti.
