    We have been always been preparing bobbatlu with toor dhal, for our sweet dear Lord Sri Krishna. However all our friends use chana dhal.

    We love them all.

    Very inspiring photos.

    Hi all I like BObbattu very much!! but dont know how to cook till now. thak u for sugessions madhu..

  12. raaji said

    heelo madhavi how r u this is first time im trying bobattu.i heard that people doing bobattu with chana dal also. as im trying for the first time which dal do u think is better

    Either one is fine. The procedure is same for both. People from andhra and maharashtra do with chana. Kannadiga’s do with toor dal. Depending upon which dal u r used to, I would say use that.

    If u have no preference then i would say toor dal.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    Oh god, reminding me of home, my Nanamma used to make real yummy. I can’t make it now. Your idea of using another banana leaf or foil is the best way. As rolling is tough, have to be careful and watch out for poli not coming out.

    Happy Ugadi and Sri Rama Navami

    Your step by step instructions are excellent – I have not made the Bobbatlu but the way you lay it out sure makes me want to try it out.

    thanks for the recipe – I plan to print it out for future reference.

    Take care –
