Puran Poli

Puran poli, is one of the delicious, famous and traditional sweets prepared during festivals and its really very famous in South India, Maharastra and Gujarat..poli can be served as dessert during auspicious occasions..this poli ressembles very much like rotis but its different as they are usually stuffed with sweet stuffing prepared either with channadal and jaggery or else with grated coconut and sugar...I prepared channadal poornam to prepare this poli,this stuffing is made using boiled channadal cooked in jaggery and aromatic spices like cardamom or nutmeg while the dough is prepared with maida flour with little water and turmeric powder..once both the dough and the stuffing is ready, the puran poli can be rolled out..a plantain leaf or a plastic sheet is greased with oil and the dough ball is patted by hand into a circle; a small amount of stuffing is placed at the center of this dough and wrapped around, rolled carefully again as pancakes and cooked in a hot pan on both sides until they get well cooked..Polis are often served with milk which may be flavoured with almonds & pistachios while in some regions served with tamarind based tangy sauces.My mom prepare this delicious puran polis for our snacks very often..while cooking this polis, the aroma of this polis attracts me and my sister even before entering our home, this puran polis brings me loads of beautiful memories.. Kids love puran poli very much.


2cups Maida
3pinchs Turmeric powder
Salt
Oil

For Filling:
1cup Channadal

Grease a plastic sheet, pat the dough ball and place a filling ball in the center of the dough ball, wrap the dough around the filling and roll it as round pancakes..drizzle few drops of ghee in a hot pan, drop gently the puran poli, cook on both sides until the puran polis get well cooked..
