KOBRI OBATTU

Kobri Obattu is just like dry coconut sweet pancake but it is crispy and good for health too there is not much of oil/ghee in it . This word is derived from kannada. The recipe for this is quite easy & simple . It is also one of my favorite sweets . This sweet usually made during festivals. You can store this for more than a week in the airtight containers. This sweet can be had any time, just as snacks during tea time or also can be served as a dessert after lunch / dinner.
