Lobongo Lotika

Ingredients:

Grated coconut- 2 cup

Sugar- 1/2 cup or your choice

Butter/ghee/oil-1/2  tbsp. + 2 tbsp.

Cardamom 2 piece

Cinnamon 1 stick

Clove 10-15 pieces

Flour  1 cup

Salt 1/2 tsp.

Warm water- approximately 1/2 cup or less

Oil for deep frying

Method:

Take 1/2 tbsp.  ghee/oil in a pan and heat it to medium heat. Saute cardamom and cinnamon, then add the coconut, sugar and salt and mix it well keeping it in medium heat. Stir occasionally. Make the mix dry and then take it off from heat and set aside.

Now take flour in a bowl, add salt, 2 tbsp.  ghee/oil and mix well. Slowly add warm water and knead well to make nice dough. Then divide the dough to small balls. Take a ball on rolling board and make a small size ruti. If necessary use extra flour while making the ruti.

Cut the ruti with a knife to make a square shape. Now place small amount of coconut mix in the middle of the square ruti, gather all the sides in middle to cover the mix and close it by putting a clove in the middle. Make all of them in the same way.

Heat oil in a pan and put this into the oil. Fry them slowly until both the sides get a nice brown colour. Then take them out on a paper towel to soak the excess oil. Fry rest of the Lobongo Lotika the same way.
