Pesarapappu Bobbatlu ~ Andhra Pindi Vantalu (Traditional sweets)
Bobbatlu, the classic traditional festival sweet of Andhra is prepared in almost all homes for festivals like Sankranti and Deepavali. This flat bread which is stuffed with sweetened lentil mixture is popular in other parts of the country and goes by the name Puran poli, Holige, Obbattu, Paruppu poli, Vedhmi and Puranachi poli. Much loved among those with a sweet tooth.
Usually the choice of dal for the stuffing is Bengal gram aka chana dal in our state of Andhra. For a change I have made pesarapappu bobbatlu which has yellow moong dal instead of chana dal. Your choice of sweetner can be jaggery though I used sugar since I ran out of jaggery. You can even use tur dal in place of moong or chana dal.
