Puran Poli Recipe

Puran Poli is a popular Marathi dish. Here is Puran Poli recipe.

  • 2 cups chana dal, soaked in water for 4 hours
  • 2 cups jaggery (adjust for sweetness)
  • 2 cups refined flour
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4th tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/4th tsp nutmeg powder
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • Cook chana dal in a pressure cooker till it turns soft. Drain out excess water until the dal is absolutely becomes dry.
  • Add jaggery and cook further and then mash into a soft paste.
  • Add cardamom powder, saffron, and freshly grated nutmeg powder and mix well. Form 20 balls of equal size and put it aside.
  • Mix refined flour, oil, water and turmeric powder. Make very soft, sticky dough. Knead very well. Use oil to knead. Divide into 20 equal portions.
  • With greased palms, take one portion of dough and flatten it into a disc of the size of the palm. Place a ball of "chana jaggery" paste in the centre and fold the disc from all sides to cover the paste completely.
  • On a well-floured board, better over a sheet of clean transparent plastic wrap, gently roll out each poli to a 6 inches disc. This can get tricky as the paste does try to slide out. Use a little flour if that happens. Roll.
  • Roast each poli on a hot, dry girdle. Do not use oil or ghee. Roast both sides well. Smear with ghee on both sides when done. Serve warm with clarified butter or a bowl of milk.
