Puran Poli-Ubbatti-Boli ~ Step by Step Recipe

Sweets make me weak..I mean,go weak on the knees.;-)I really don't know how I survived without it for 5 months now.All hell broke loose when we went to Bangalore,literally.All of them felt,enough of the diet and asked me to have at least "a little bit" or they will not feel good about eating it!!Ahem ahem,to say I was tempted would be putting it lightly.I badly wanted someone to force me to eat something so that I could be devoid of all the guilt!!And once I started eating 'little bits",it became one too many and there was no stopping me.One week and I put on 1 kg,I guess that says it all!!But it was all worth it..!!

Puran poli-Ubbatti-Boli is something which my ma-in-law prepared for us.It was yum yum yummy.We made it together,ok my contribution was-taking pics,while my ma-in-law and vanni prepared it.It is supposed to be had with ghee smeared all over,but we preferred having it plain.Though I have to admit I had one with ghee;-)It is upto you whether to have it plain or with ghee,it will taste yummier whichever way you eat it!!

Puran poli


Channa dal-Bengal gram dal - 1 cup
Jaggery- 1 cup
Maida - 1 1/2 cups
Kesar powder - 1 pinch ( optional)
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 8 tbsps
Cardamom pods - 2-3


Sieve maida.Add turmeric powder and kesar powder mixed with milk(if adding).Knead well using oil as required and prepare a soft dough.Keep aside for 2-3 hours.
Cook channa dal in a pressure cooker till done.
Add jaggery to the cooked dal.Mix well till it forms a lump.
Grind to a smooth paste without adding water.
Add cardamom,grind well.
Maida dough and bengal gram dal filling is ready.

Make lime sized balls of both the maida and the filling.
Make puris with maida dough and place the filling.

Close it fully with the puri,by folding it all around.

Roll the polis into small puris.

Place a tawa on flame and roast the polis on both sides till brown.

Serve with ghee.
