Suji halwa bobbattu tastes yummy,we shallo fried it due to calorie conscious.Previously we used to deep fry it,then it was called as Sojiappam.
For Halwa:

Suji 1 cup
Sugar 1 to 1 and half  cups
Ghee 3 tbsp
Water 2 cups
Place a heavy bottomed vessel on the stove,add 1 tsp ghee and roast the suji ravva in med temp till light brown .Keep it aside.
Add sugar and water in a seperate bowl and let it boil,after it is boiled add suji ravva slowly and cook in a low temp.
Now add ghee and cook till it turns in to a halwa paste,leaving the sides.
Switch off the stove,cover with a lid and allow to cool.
After it is cool,make small portions into round balls n keep them covered.
For Poli/bobbattu:
Maidha-2 cups
Salt a pinch
Oil 2 to 3 tbsp
Mix maidha  well with water into a smooth  dough  ,like we prepare for puris.
Lastly pour 2 tbsp oil and mix n pat with the hands.It will be smooth .Keep it aside for more than one should be done before preparing the halwa.For making such bobbatlu..sojappam,do not add cashews for even
After one hour make small portions into balls n keep them covered.
Taka a plantain leaf/plastic foil spread a few drops oil with your hand,take a small ball of maidha and spread it with your hands,in to a small puri.
Then take one halwa round ball,and keep it in the puri and cover from 4 sides.
Now again press with your oily  hand and spread it ,and place directly on tawa and shallow fry with oil/ghee as per your choice..
If you are not calorie conscious deep fry in ghee /oil.
A sweet item which we can offer as prasadam,children love them..This recipe is straightly from my sister padmas kitchen..
