Puran Poli Recipe | Sweet Poli Recipe | Paruppu Poli Recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Puran Poli is stuffed flat bread made with all purpose flour. There are different variations of stuffing used. Traditionally it is sweet recipe where chana dal/coconut is used for stuffing but we do have savory versions. Popularly known as upputu, it is made during many festivals/occasions. It is one of the my favorite sweets and I always help my mom while preparing during childhood.
I have used versatile chana dal stuffing which is used for kozhukattai or suviyam. Process of preparing looks to be lengthy but with proper planning we can make it easily. I made the stuffing and also the dough for outer covering previous day and made next day early morning before my kids wake up. Key to soft poli is soft and elastic dough. Use Gingely oil while kneading and knead them till soft and elastic. Allow the dough to rest for 4-6 hours. Monday again and theme for this week in Foodie Monday Bloghop group is #218DiwaliDhamaka.
