Kobbari Billalu

Easy snack made easily with Rice flour and grated cooconut.My use to make them in the evening and serve us hot by the time we come from school...didnt have them for few years...made it last week and my hubby liked it.Every thursday we offer Coconut to Lord Sai Baba..like this I had around 3 coconuts left at home and was bored of making regular Coconut chutney and coconut rice so I asked and she told me this recipe.I was scared that this dish may absorb lot of oil but it didnt happen so we enjoyed this snack with a cup of coffee on a clod evening.
Rice Flour:2 cups
Moong Dal:5 spns(soaked for 1 hr)
Grated Coconut:1 cup
Green Chilli Paste:2 spns(adjust acc to ur taste)
Salt:To taste
Seaseme Seeds:2 spns
Oil:For Deep Frying
Water:Preferably hot water
1.Take all the above ingridents except oil into a bowl,make it into a smooth dough by sprinkling water .(dough should be like a chapathi dough).Cover it and put it aside for 15-20 mins.
2.Put oil for deep frying on flame.Mean while divide the dough into a small portion and make into a ball and press it flat and put it in the hot oil and fry it till it turns golden brown on both sides,remove from oil and pu them on a paper towel.
3.Serve it hot with any spicy pickle.
When making billalu dont make them too thin.Make them into 1/2 inch width.
To mix all the ingridents to make the dough use hot water instead of water at room temperature.

Do you use fresh coconut or dry grated coconut? Billalu looks crisp and nice something like nippattu of karnataka :)
