Puran poli is one of the sweet and tasty dish. In southern India, it is known as Obbattu and Boli in Tamilnadu. I have learned this recipe from my friend. It will be like stuffed paratha. We can use both sugar or jaggery and also we can do this in wheat flour & All purpose flour ( Maida).Mostly they will make this poli with channa dhal but we can
make it with toor dhal it will taste equally good.
For outer cover:
Maida( All purpose flour) - 1cup
Salt to taste
Channa dhal - 1/2 cup
Mix maida with salt , oil & water and make soft dough cover with wet cloth or food wrapper for 2 - 3 hrs.
Wash dhal & cook in pressure cooker for 3 whistles.
Heat ghee in a pan add channa dhal and keep it in medium flame till the water evaporates and then add jaggery & cardamom powder. Keep for sometime till the puran becomes dry.
Grease the palms with little oil and make the dough into lemon sized balls. Take one ball from the dough and make small roti & keep the puran in the center and fold the edges to cover them.
Take the rolling board sprinkle some flour and place the stuffed ball and roll it very gently. Make sure your puran did not come out.To avoid this you grease some oil in the rolling board instead of flour make poli by pressing the ball with palm or on plastic sheet.
Heat the tava and place the poli on tava .cook both sides until the color changes to light brown and apply some ghee while making poli.
Serve puran poli and enjoy..........
