Puran Poli ( Chana daal stuffed sweet parathas )

Hi everyone ,




                       Let me first wish all of you a very happy holi. 


Holi is the Hindu festival of colours  celebrated in the hindu month of Phalgun.

And now the indispensible part of the festival i.e the sweets and other delicacies prepared during Holi.

Holi is usually related with puranpoli, bhaang and many many more delicious things.

Today I made puranpoli on this auspicious day and am posting the recipe .

I just cant think of celebrating this day without puranpoli. If we dont have it I keep on feeling that the celebrations are incomplete.


Ingredients :

2 cups ....................chana daal
1 cup.......................jaggery
1 cup .....................wheat flour
1 cup.....................maida
2 tbsp....................semolina (rawa)
1/2 cup ................oil
1 tbsp...................cardamon powder
1 tsbp....................nutmeg powder.
1 tbsp .................ghee





Method :

Soak the chana daal in water for 2 to 3 hours.
Knead wheat flour, maida and rawa with little water to a slightly loose and sticky dough.
Now add 1 tbsp oil at a time and keep on kneading till all the oil is used and the dough
becomes sticky and oily.
Keep the dough aside .
Pressure cook the chana daal with little water till it is properly cooked
This should be done with 3 to 4 whistles and 10 minutes cooking after that on slow flame.
Drain out any water if left in daal .
Now in a non stick pan add 1 tbsp ghee and add daal and jaggery and go on stirring.
First the jaggery will melt and the mixture will become diluted but stir continuously.
After about 25 to 30 minutes the mixture will start thickening.
If you insert the spoon in the mixture it should not fall and remain straight.
This is the test that you have got the correct consistency.
Now either grind this on the grinder to get a smooth paste or mash it properly till smooth.
Form medium balls and keep them aside.
Now take a small ball of dough and flatten it on your palm.
Keep the daal jaggery ball in the middle and close the dough from all sides.
Now roll this like you would for a stuffed paratha .
Cook on Non stick tawa on both sides till done.
Serve with a dollop of ghee .
Some people like to eat this puranpoli dipped in milk.
