PURAN POLI AND A SHORT BREAK

Marathi sweet ''Puran poli'' is one of our families favourite sweet. This is perfect for all the occasion. Believe me friends it has got lots of work but tastes heavenlly when its done with patience. My way of making puran poli is entirly different from others. I prepare them adding moong dal with sugar instead of channa dal and jaggery and for the extra taste I fry the stuffing in ghee. I really cannot prepare this all by myself. My hubby is expert in filling the stuff and roll them perfectly into equal same size. So what I do is before rajesh returns from office, I prepare the stuffing and the dough. Later filling and rolling is his job. Thus we prepare together and have a nice time at the final stage.

I am so happy to post this recipe and glad that I participate in ''DIWALI EVENT'' before taking a short break.



INGREDIENTS FOR MAKING STUFFING.

1 cup moong dal.

1 or 3/4 cup Sugar.

1 tbs Cardamom powder.

1/2 Cup Ghee.

INGRIDENTS FOR MAKING DOUGH.

1 1/2 cup Maida.

2 tbs Ghee.

Water as per required.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Cook moong dal in cooker till its well cooked. I add less water to cook so that theres no excess water to be drained. The dal should be dry enough and mashed well. Keep aside.

Heat pan and add ghee. Add mashed dal and fry it in ghee for few sec. Then add sugar and mix well. Keep on stirring occasionly till its becomes in the form of dough. At the time of removing from stove add cardomom powder. Let it cool for while. Later divide them equally into small balls.

Meanwhile mix all the ingredients for making dough. Make it very soft adding few ghee at the end. Divide the dough into equally small balls.

With greased palms, take one portion of dough and flatten it into a disc of the size of the palm. Place a ball of moong dal stuffing in the centre and fold the disc from all sides to cover the paste completely.


Carefully reroll the dough into full sized thin chappathi. Make sure the stuffing does not come out.

Preheat a frying pan on a medium heat. Add 1 tsp ghee and place the puran poli. When its slight brown apply little more ghee and continue flipping the poli frequently. Cook until both the sides are slight brown.


Serve with a touch of ghee on its side.
