Puran Poli

Puran Poli is a flat roti stuffed with sweet lentil filling made from split Bengal gram/chana dal and organic jaggery. In Marathi, this sweet filling is called puran and the roti is called poli.


For Puran:

1 cup organic jaggery

1 cup chana dal (skinned split Bengal gram soaked for 12 14 hours with water being changed every 6-7 hours)

3 cups water to pressure cook the chana dal

2 tsp ghee

1 tsp cardamom powder

1 tsp fennel powder

1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

For the Poli(roti):

1.5 cups organic khapali wheat

4 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp pink salt

1/4 tsp organic turmeric

Water as required to knead the dough.


Rinse the soaked chana dal, in a pressure cooker

Preparing the poli:

– Take a medium-sized ball from the dough prepared to roll it to 3 inches in circumference on the rolling board.

– Place the Puran mixture in the center.

– Bring the edges together and join all the edges. 4. Sprinkle some flour and start rolling the dough till a medium-size poli is made.

– On a heated griddle, spread some ghee and place the poli.

– When the inner side gets brown flip it over and apply ghee.

– If everything is done well the Puran poli will puff and brown spots will appear.

– Serve hot with a topping of ghee.

Notes: Soaking of chana dal for 12- 14 hours releases the phytic acid and they become more easily digestible.

– Soaking helps in faster cooking of the chana daltoo and hence making it softer and easily digestible.

– Cardamom resolves digestive issues.

– Nutmeg boosts immunity and fennel powder hasanti-inflammatory properties.

– Organic jaggery is loaded with antioxidants andminerals.

– Puran Poli is loaded with iron, calcium and is a cereal pulse combination which makes it a complete protein.

– Khapali wheat is rich in complex carbs, fiber, trace minerals, and amino acids.
