    Hi Yummy Team
    Its a gr8 snack, I tried it & kids loved it.
    Suggest that the maida ball to be made smaller than lemon size as it requires to be rolled out very thin or else the filling might not spread evenly while rolling.
    Thanks & looking forward to many more postings on sweet & savoury snacks.

    Rather than turmeric powder, strands of saffron will enhance the colour & taste of the sweetboli.

    Yes, saffron is a good substitute for turmeric powder. Thanks for the comment.

    I have been trying hard to make this :(.When I cover with a thin layer of maida ball,chana is coming out while rolling, which makes it impossible to roll..When I tried with thick layer of maida , it was becoming very stiff after a while..Could you please help me out?..Urs look awesome..Thanks in advance..

    Thanks for this recipe. How do you reheat the bolis once you refrigerate them? I am planning to make it two days in advance before onam and it would convenient to make it earlier. Thanks

    But main ingredients are nutmeg and mace (jaathikka and jaathi patri) which are not used in this recipe. They add unique flavour to boli
