Set the Oven temp: 400 F- 200 C

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ghee
1 tsp salt
cold water to mix
oil for deep-frying

1 cup sattu (powdered roasted gram)
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/8 tsp asafoetida
3/4 tsp garam masala
3/4 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp powdered fennel seeds
2 tsp powdered coriander seeds
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp powdered amchoor (dried mango powder)

Mix the filling ingredients together and keep aside.

Make the dough:
Mix in the flour, salt, ghee and enough water to make a stiff dough. Cover and leave to rest for at least 15-20 minutes.

Make about 20 smooth balls from the dough. Roll into 1/4″ thick rounds. Pinch edge all around and wet.

Place a ball of the filling in the center, and bring the wet edges together, covering the filling completely. Press together to seal. Roll between palms to smoothen.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, then lower the oven temperature and bake another 20-25 minutes, till brown and cooked through.

Note: You can serve these hot with ghee poured on top.

@ tanu…
oil for deepfrying is only used when you dont bake the littis.
if you dont have an oven then boil the littis for 10 mintutes ans then deep fry in the oil.
Litties are boiled to make them softer.
