SUJI HALWA-BOBBATTU/ SOJIAPPAM SHALLOW FRYSuji halwa bobbattu tastes yummy..they were deep fried in ghee in previous days..but due to calorie conscious we shallow fried with ghee on a tawa..
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.

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 hour..it should be done before preparing the halwa.For making such bobbatlu..sojappam,do not add cashews for even

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.
