I was so waiting to post this Xtra Special Kobbari Obittu Recipe. I am sure you are wondering why I was so eager to post this and why this is extra special!

A long while ago,when I was a kid, mom took part in a cookery contest in one of the magazines where innovation was the key. She came up with a recipe and sent it across. Since it was a written recipes contest, the magazine tests the recipes and then declared the winners.

Mom won the first prize and the recipe was published in the magazine as well! And that dear friends is why this recipe is xtra special.


She has told me this recipe several times and each time I would want to make it but somehow it never got done.

Finally when I was looking for something to be posted for the alphabet X in the A- z flatbread series, I thought this one would be very apt for the alphabet!

This is a obittu recipe.Obittu is a sweet flatbread from Karnataka and the filling here is dried coconut / kobbari , poppy seeds, roasted chana dal and jaggery. It is a very different filling from the usual boiled channa dal-jaggery mixture.

So here is mom’s prize winning recipe….

Here is how to prepare Xtra Special Kobbari Obittu Recipe

Dry roast the poppy seeds, roasted channa dal individually and transfer onto a plate.
