BOBBATU --- HOLIGE--- OBBATU or Poli is on of the most favorite and importent sweet for south indians.we make these sweet for UGADI festival the Telugu New Year and here i am with my recipe................. INGREDIENTS FOR DOUGH:-------

Salt ----- 1/4 tea sp
Oil ---- 1/4 cup
Ghee --- 1 tab sp
In a mixing bowl add Allpurpose flour,salt mix well, now slowly add oil and ghee and rub well
Now add enough water to make a soft and sticky dough, knead well for a 5 min. then leave this a side for 2-3 hours(this is very importent for this dough you have to knead the dough very well and leave it for 2-3 hours this makes the dough soft and bobbatu will be very soft if you don't do this you may get hard bobbatu)
And cover it with the dough from all sides.
Remove the extra dough from the top.
Aply little oil to your fingers and start pressing the ball in to a circle .
Traditionaly we use only ghee for Bobbatlu,but here i used oil and ghee 1/2 and 1/2 for frying the Bobbatlu.
