Pesarapappu Bobbatlu/Sweet Moongdal Poli

Pesarapappu means Yellow moong dal in Telugu, and my today's post is this delicious moongdal sweet polis, you may wonder why am talking about this ultimate sweet. Let me tell you, i will be posting three different festival recipes during this week of blogging marathon as i picked Festival Recipes as theme. For the first day of this week's blogging marathon, am posting this Pesarapappu bobbatlu as this sweet flatbreds have their own place in Sankranti or in Ugadi feast. Usually the classic traditional festival sweet Bobbatlu aka obbattu, holige, paruppu poli is prepared with channa dal-jaggery stuffing, but this yellow moongdal flatbread is prepared completely with sugar and cooked yellow moongdal. Obviously its quite a different poli/flatbread to give a try if you want something new to dish out for your pooja.

Pesarapappu Bobbatlu, yellow moongdal poli

Actually instead of sugar, you can use very well jaggery, since i want to make them with sugar i went on with the moongdal-sugar stuffing. Exactly like Paruppu poli, this flatbreads calls for a dough prepared with all purpose flour. Ugadi is celebrated as the first day of the year by the peoples of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.  And this year Ugadi is on March 28th. Since is picked Festival recipes as theme for this week, i couldnt resist to kick start during week's blogging marathon with this ultimate sweet flatbreads. Hence am posting this delicious Ugadi special Pesarapappu Bobbatlu.
