How to make Kobbari Coconut Paratha:
To make this yummy Coconut Stuffed Sweet Paratha, mix together wheat flour, salt and oil in a bowl.
Add a little water to the mixture and knead into a smooth, pliable dough. Cover and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Grate fresh coconut and grind the sugar and rice flakes to a fine powder.
Coarsely grind the mixed nuts.
Mix grated coconut, powdered sugar, rice flakes powder, cardamom powder and ground nuts together. Keep aside.
Divide the dough into 6 equal sized balls. Roll out each ball into a disc and put about 3 tbsp of the coconut stuffing in the centre of the flatbread.
Bring the edges together and close to form a ball.
Lightly roll the coconut filling-stuffed flatbread ball in dry wheat flour. Gently flatten the ball on the sealed side.
Keep the sealed side up and roll out the ball into a slightly thick paratha.
Do the same with the rest of the dough portions and coconut stuffing.
Heat a griddle and place a stuffed coconut paratha on it. Cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes and then flip over.
Drizzle about ½ tsp of oil on the top and sides. Lightly press the sweet paratha with a spatula.
When the coconut paratha turns golden brown on both sides, remove.
Enjoy deliciously sweet Coconut Paratha with a piping hot cup of coffee!
Coconut Stuffed Sweet Paratha Recipe details:
- Wheat Flour – 1 cup
- Salt – ¼ tsp
- Oil – 1 tsp
- Water for kneading the dough
- Grated coconut – 1 cup
- Powdered sugar – ¼ cup
- Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
- Rice Flakes/Poha – 1 tbsp, grind to powder
- Mixed nuts – 2 tbsp (almonds, cashewnuts and walnuts)
- Oil – 1 to 1 ½ tbsp for cooking the parathas
- For this sweet paratha with coconut stuffing, take 1 cup of atta. Sieve it. Add a pinch of salt, and a teaspoon of oil. Knead well into a soft dough with a little water. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
- Grate the coconut and powder the sugar. Grind the poha to a fine powder. Poha is added to ensure moisture doesn’t seep out when coconut is mixed with sugar. Grind the mixed nuts coarsely.
- For the filling, mix grated coconut, powdered sugar, cardamom powder, rice flakes powder and powdered dry fruits together and keep aside.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Roll out the balls of dough into about 3 inch diameter discs.
- Place about 3 tbsp of the filling in the centre of the rolled out paratha. (Ideally the stuffing should be a tad more than the dough portion). Pull the edges of the rolled dough together and seal. Dust with flour and gently roll out into slightly thick parathas.
- Heat a pan and place the rolled out paratha on it. Let it cook on medium heat and then flip it over. Drizzle ½ tsp of oil over it and along the edges. Once brown spots appear on both sides, remove from pan.
