Poli recipe (Puran poli)

As I always make Suzhiyan for Diwali,the pooranam(stuffing) I always  make a bit more than needed and keep refrigerated. After few days I make poli which is my hubby’s favorite. I am not an expert in rolling poli,but I have improved than before now!  Thanks to Jugalbandhi,which have a good pictorial  to learn the technique and have drool worthy and professional pictures as well :)

I have updated the recipe and picture after asking my MIL for the recipe. My mom in law says using ghee gives perfect tasty polis. You can use sesame oil(nallennei) too instead. I used sesame oil for dough and ghee while cooking poli. I also have a helping video on shaping the poli with hands.

Puran Poli recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet Prep Time: 3 hrs    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Makes: 12

Ingredients

Refer this post Suzhiyan for the preperation of the pooranam/stuffing.
Maida / All purpose flour - 1 cup

Pooranam (Stuffing) - As needed

Sesame Oil /Ghee -1/4 cup + 2tblsp

Luke warm water - 1/4 cup or as needed

Salt - 1/4 tsp

Method

  1. Mix 1/4 oil and salt in the flour, thoroughly. Rub it well to resemble a crumble. 
  2. 1-mix
  3. Sprinkle luke warm water carefully and make dough, it should be a soft and loose dough. Since we add oil a lot, it may look as if we need not water at all, but add water coz, we need water to bind the dough well. As you knead, it will get incorporated so add and keep kneading for atleast 10 mins. Keep aside for 3 hrs minimum with the remaining 2 tblsp of oil poured over it. Keep covered. I will recommend to make dough in morning if you want to make poli in the evening.
  4. 2-soak
  5. Make equal sized ball of dough and the pooran too. In a counter top, use a banana leaf or a polythene sheet or like me, a cookie sheet to flatten the dough.
  6. 3-roll
  7. Flatten the dough ball to a thick circle and place the pooran ball in the middle and cover it as shown in the picture. Flatten again with your fingers.
  8. 4-flat
  9. Use ghee or sesame oil and flatten carefully till the dough spreads and covers the pooran as a thin layer. Heat tawa and transfer the sheet upside down so that the poli gets transferred to the tawa.
  10. 5-cook
  11. Cook on both sides till golden brown spots appear on both sides of the poli. Use ghee 1/2 tsp each side while cooking. Keep stacked as you make the polis until you finish making them all. Top with butter if desired and enjoy hot.
  12. 6-stack
Enjoy hot polis! puran poli recipe

  13. My Mom's an expert in this and to an extent me too, a quick suggestion, try adding more wheat flour and less maida to the dough, it tastes much better, and art is kneading the dough...
