Healthier Version Of (Oven Baked) Kajjikayalu.

As far as healthy food is concerned, baked food comes first in this category because baked food items are low in fat. So I decided to experiment with my own recipe, transforming it into oven bake method. In fact my old version of kajjikayalu recipe is traditional but not healthy because its made with plain flour and deep fried.  So here I used wheat flour instead of plain flour( which is not good for health). It turned out just perfect. I hope everyone would try out this healthier version of kajjikayalu.

For Dough:

Wheat flour   2Cups
Semolina      1/4 Cup
Oil                 3 Tbsp
little bit of Salt

Mix well the wheat flour, semolina and salt together.
Once heat the oil and add this hot oil to the flour and mix it again with a spoon. Now add enough
 water to make  dough and cover the lid , keep it aside for 20 mints.















Meanwhile prepare the filling.

For Filling

1cup      Fresh coconut
1/4 cup Sugar/brown sugar(I used brown sugar)
1/2 tsp  Cardamom powder

Mix all the ingredients and heat on stove in a kadai.  stirring continuously until the sugar will melt (Its take 10 mints).
















Take small lemon size dough.
















And roll this like a chapathi.

                                                                                                Place the one spoon filling on this                                                                          

                                      
                                       











   and fold.





                                                                             






























                       













  Place all the kajjikayalu in oven baking tray and put in the oven



Bake until the light golden colour, turn other side and wait 2 more minutes and switch off the oven.
