For the filling

  • 2 cups Cooked Chana Dal
  • 1 cup Jaggery Grated
  • 1 tbsp Ghee
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Powder Not traditional. I add it because I like the flavour.

For the dough

  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder Not traditional. I add it for that lovely colour.

  9. Divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions.

  10. Dust and roll the dough balls to make a 4-5 inch circle.

  11. Keep a filling ball in the centre of the dough circle and bring the ends together.

  12. Dust and roll again to make a 6 inch circle.

  13. Heat a griddle and transfer the Puran Poli on the griddle.
