The dough should not be too firm as it will be challenging to roll after adding filling inside it.
Yellow gram, recognized as chana dal, is soaked for about an hour or two before making the filling, and it is cooked in a pressure cooker for 15 to 20 minutes.
The dal is smashed to form a fine paste. In a cauldron, nutmeg powder and cardamom are roasted in ghee.
Grated jaggery along with mashed chana dal is added to it. It is stirred and roasted until the batter turns thick. A sweet and deep yellow batter is ready to be added as a filling.
Tiny balls are made out of dough, and they are rolled flat, and the filling is added inside them.
It is secured by all sides and then again converted into a ball. Now the ball is carefully rolled in flat circular chapati so that the filling does not spill.
