Puran Poli - Pooran Poli Recipe - Easy Poli Recipe

Puran Poli Recipe
Puran Poli is a traditional recipe made with maida and chana dal pooranam.I grew up seeing amma make this for me and have helped her many time. But never did I think I can also make it from the scratch one day but blogging for this space made all the impossible things possible :) The first thing that made me stay away from trying this was the rolling part. But now as I have tried my hands with many stuffed parathas this was at ease as I found rolling stuffing with maida was so much easy when compared to wheat flour.

Pooran Poli / Puran Poli Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 20 mins | Cooking Time : 40 mins | Makes : around 10 polis
Recipe Category: Sweet | Recipe Cuisine: Indian

For the Pooranam (Inner stuffing):

Chana dal - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Coconut - 1.5 tbsp

For Poornam Wrap:

Maida - 1.5 cups
Oil / Ghee - 1 tbsp

Method:

  1. First for making the outer wrap : Take maida in a bowl, add oil and salt, Mix well then add water little by little.

  2. Form a soft pilable dough just like chapathi dough. Allow it to rest for an hr . Meanwhile lets get on to make the pooranam(inner filling).

  3. For the inner pooranam : Dry roast channa dal till a nutty aroma comes, dont let it brown. Then soak it in water for atleast 1 hour.

  4. Then cook channa dal with water until soft but not mushy(It should still be in shape if you press it). Drain water from channa dal and keep aside.I was not confident in pressure cooking channa dal so cooked it in a open pan.

  5. Dry roast coconut till the moisture leaves. Grind channa dal with jaggery to a coarse mixture- Use the pulse option in ur mixie and press it on and off, dont make it a paste.

  6. Add roasted coconut,cardomom powder to the grinded channa dal jaggery mixture. Make small lemon sized balls and keep it ready. I made the filling little more keeping in mind to make my another favourite :) Wait and watch!!

  7. Now pinch equal sized balls(slightly bigger than the channa dal balls) flatten it a bit. Then keep the puranam ball in the center.

  8. Seal it completely by pulling the sides to center just like how we make for stuffed parathas. Then flatten it slightly. Dust flour if needed.

  9. Roll it to a thick or thin poli. Heat tawa carefully place the poli on the tawa, drizzle oil and cook the poli ion both sides until brown spots appear. Serve hot with a tsp of butter

I like both the thin ones and the thick ones. I totally love the polis served in IRCTC during the day journeys and would wait for it :) This is called Holige or Obbattu in Kannada and is popular there.They are very soft when had hot / warm. Make sure you try them only when you have time in hand. As the rolling part needs patience and takes time to get perfect polis without the stuffing oozing out.
Puran Poli Recipe

My Notes:

  • It keeps well in room temperature for a day. If refrigerated it can stay well for 1 day(if you make it today it will keep well till 2mrw)....It hardens when refrigerated so I dont prefer doing so but then in case of leftovers..you can refrigerate and while serving just heat it up(but sure this way it will turn hard).
  • While grinding take care not to make the channa dal to a paste consistency. It should be coarse with one or dals popping out.
  • Rolling thick or thin is purely your choice.Serve hot/warm with butter - tastes divine!
  • You can add a pinch of turmeric powder as in store bought ones but I dont prefer doing so.
  • You can also add milk while mixing the maida dough but again shelf life is less.

  33. Delicious and divine post. We make the wrapper alone slightly different.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That looks- amazing. I've really never had Indian (if that is the improper way to refer to it, please forgive me!). Are the ingredients things that have a direct substitute or an "American" name or are they things I'll have to seek out specifically from places that might carry "ethnic" foods?

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Joey : This is a indian traditional sweet and dont have substitutes....May be the filling can be twisted but still I would recommend to go with the same ingredients as a first timer :)

    ReplyDelete

  45. Hi Sharmi,
    I am a huge fan of your blog. Whatever dish I wish to cook I make it a point to search for the recipe on your blog. :) I just made these puran polis. The filling is tasty but the polis turned out very tough to chew :( What could the reason be?

    ReplyDelete

    1. The dough should not be very tight.....also while toasting dont flip it often which may be end up in hard polis
