This week is going to be some delicious sweet flatbreads with different stuffings. Yes i picked Sweet flatbreads as theme for this week's blogging marathon. Poli/Holige is a Indian sweet flatbread which calls for channadal-jaggery stuffing. Though channadal stuffing is a quite popular stuffing for making some polis, many different versions of polis do exists. One of the popular poli after Puran poli aka channadal stuffing poli is this Thengai poli. Freshly grated coconut, once grinded with jaggery and cooked for few minutes makes this fantastic polis.
