Opputtu/Coconut Poli

This is a famous sweet in our region..unlike channa dhal poli's, these coconut poli's last long. You can store them for about a week/10 days outside. My mom has told me the stories how people have this in olden grandpa will eat these with ghee and banaanaa. too sweet-na?? :)

Shreded Coconut - 2 cups
Powdered Jaggery -1 1/2 cups(Adjust to your taste..i have a real sweet tooth! :) )
Maida/All purpose flour-1cup
Salt- a pinch

Mix the salt and 2 spoons of oil with maida, then add water and make a soft dough. Coat the dough with oil and let it rest for half an hour.

Dry roast the coconut flakes till the moisture evaporates and keep it aside.

Melt the Jaggery on a low heat with little water and crushed elaichi..Add in the roasted coconut and cook till you get a thick consistency.

Once the coconut mixture is cooled down,make lemon size balls..make the same size balls from maida too.

Stuff the coconut balls carefully in the Maida balls.Flatten the stuffed balls with your fingers.

Put the flattened opputtu on a (medium hot) griddle..sprinkle some oil and cook on both sides.

delicious Opputtu is ready to serve...tastes better after one or two days.
