Every year I attempt to make bakshappalu. 
It's a challenge for me. 
Especially when you have mom and inlaws who are good cooks. 
Both do it with their talent and I struggle to get it right every time 
This time I took another approach. 
Undeterred the property of maida itself 
May be that's the trick

2 cups maida
Salt 1/2 tsp
1 tsp turmeric 
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup Confectioners sugar- optional
3/4 glass of warm water doesn't have to be hot
1/2 cup sesame oil

Mix dry ingredients and add water 
It will become little gooey dough 
That is good
Now take sesame oil in hand 
Mix for 5 more times until the dough is soft
Leave dough for 30 min to 1 hr

Poornam prep

1 cup toor dal 
1 tsp turmeric optional 
1 cup jaggery
1/2 cup coconut
1 tsp elaichi powder

Cook toot dak with 2 cups of water in instant pot for 20 min
After cooking mash it to a paste

Add grated jaggery , coconut and elaichi powder and mix well

Rest it till it cools down completely 

Now the preparation
