Preparation Method

      For the Dough
    1. Mix all the ingredients and knead to a soft dough. Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
    2. When required, knead again.
    3. Divide it into 15 equal portions. Make round balls.
      For the Filling:
    1. Thouroughly wash dal in lukewarm water. In a pan, soak dal for 1 hour. Pressure-cook up to 3 whistles.
    2. Remove excess water from the dal. Use it to make osaman.
    3. Keep aside the dal for 10 minutes to cool.
    4. Add sugar and whisk it till smooth.
    5. On a medium flame put the dal mixture to cook in a thick-bottomed pan. Add ghee*.
    6. Stir continuously for 25-30 minutes till it thickens and leaves the sides of the vessel**.
    7. Remove from the fire. Add saffron paste, cardamom and nutmeg powders. Mix well. Allow it to cool.
    8. Divide it into 15 equal portions. Keep aside.*To Proceed
    9. Flatten one dough portion lightly. Dust and roll it into a round roti of 3"- 4" diameter.
    10. Place one portion of the filling in the middle of the roti. Fold the edges of the roti over the filling and seal it.
    11. Lightly flatten it. Gently re-roll into a round roti of 4"–5" diameter.
    12. Pre-heat the griddle on a medium flame. Roast the roti on both the sides till it turns light, golden brown in colour.
    13. Repeat the same for the remaining dough and filling.
    14. Apply ghee on both the sides of the vedhami. Serve hot with kadhi or adad ni dal.
      Additional Note
    • Tuvar ni dal without oil or channa ni dal can be used to make this filling.
      Ghee is added to avoid spluttering of the dal.
      The filling is ready when a spatula stands upright in the centre of the cooked dal filling.
