Puran Poli is known with various names across parts of India such as Puran Poli in Marathi, Vedmi in Gujarati, Boli in Tamil, Bakshalu in Telugu, Holige or Obbattu in Kannada. This is always served with ghee, pickle, and curries like katachi amti. You can check Maharashtra style Puran Poli.

How To Make Gujrati Puran Poli At Home

  1. Cook lentil properly and then drain the water. If extra water will remain in lentil then it will take a long time to dry up after mixing with jaggery.
  2. Don’t throw lentil water and use in making amti.
  3. I used whole wheat flour which gave great results. However, you can always make this with either refined flour (maida) or 1:1 ratio of both flours.
  4. Add any one of the ingredients for flavor among saffron, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, dry ginger powder.
  5. The filling should be equal to the dough portion. It tastes amazing with so much generous filling.
  6. Serve with ghee, pickle, and amti.

Method

  1. Puran Preparation– First of all, clean and wash the tuar dal properly. Soak it in water for at least one hour.
  2. Combine all ingredients for the dough and make a soft dough. Keep it aside until filling is getting ready. This will also help to make this dough very soft.
  3.  After an hour drain all the water from the soaked dal and cooked with 2 cups of water in the pressure cooker. Two whistle is enough to cook tuar dal as it was soaked. Let the cooker releases on its own.
  4. Drain all the water from the cooked dal. You this water in making amti or kneading dough for chapati or just sip with the dash of lemon n salt. Mash cooked chana dal with the masher. You can also use a food processor to churn it.
  5. Now heat a non-stick kadhai on medium flame and add mashed tuar dal, 1tblsp ghee, and jaggery. Combine it cook it on medium-low heat.Vedmi or Puran Poli is a sweet Indian flatbread which is often prepared on festivals like Holi, Gudi Padva to name a few.

  9. Let the mixture comes at room temperature. As soon as filling comes at room temperature divide the filling and dough into equal portions. I could make 5 Puran polis with this.
  10. Making Poli– Take a portion of dough and roll it into 2.5″ circle. Place a filling portion inside and gently seal it by bringing all the edges together.Vedmi or Puran Poli is a sweet Indian flatbread which is often prepared on festivals like Holi, Gudi Padva to name a few.

  12. Heat a griddle on medium heat and place this rolled Poli on the griddle. Flip it on another side after a few seconds.
  13. Apply ghee or oil and cook from both sides until golden brown. They puff up nicely sometimes. Repeat the same process with other dough balls.Vedmi or Puran Poli is a sweet Indian flatbread which is often prepared on festivals like Holi, Gudi Padva to name a few.

Note

  1. Add ghee while kneading the dough. I used milk to make a soft dough.
  2. Apply oil before placing the filling. Makes puffy polis.
  3. They are good for a week to store. Generally, 3 days are enough to keep them fresh.
  4. Add turmeric if you like.
  5. After cooking dal is already very soft. It is up to you to grind it or to mix with jaggery as it is. I mixed after draining the water. While stirring I mashed it.
