Puran Poli

My contri to SWC- Maharashtra
My contri to the Sweet Series event of TOI
Also roti mela event


1 cup Split yellow gram (Channa dal)
1 Cup grated jaggery
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp nutmeg powder
1 cup wheat flour

1/2 tsp salt

1. Soak the dal in water for 1 hour. Then pressure cook it with enough water.
2. Let the dal be very soft. Drain the water and keep the dal in a kadhai. Do not throw the dal water as it can be used to prepare Katachi Amti.

3. Add jaggery to the dal and on medium flame mix the dal and jaggery till the mixture is thick enough to form rounds. See the pic. Remove from fire and add the cardamom and nutmeg powder and mix well.

4. Mix water an
d salt in the wheat flour and make a dough of it of the same consistency as of the dal jaggery mixture(Puran).

5. Make equal rounds of the dough and the Puran.
6. Make a bowl like structure of the dough and fill in the puran into it. Close it and roll it out. Use rice flour for dusting while rolling the puran poli.
7. Roast it on a hot tawa from both sides. Serve hot with lots of ghee and milk/katachi amti.
