Purana Poli

"Pazhayana Kazhithalum Pudhiyana Pugudhalum", Lets clean our houses and get rid of old unused items. Lets not burn, rather recycle and donate.

The great series of festival, Pongal starts with Bhogi. Staying here I miss drawing Kolams, eating Sugarcane.
The recipe for Bhogi is Purana Poli, Paruppu Vadai, and Payasam.

Purana Poli
(Print this Recipe)

You need:

Maida Flour - 1 Cup
Turmeric Powder - A pinch
Gingelley Oil - 1 teaspoon

For Grinding:
Channa dhal - 1/2 Cup
Grated Cocunut - 2 table spoon
Cardamom - 3
Jaggery(Vellam) - 1/2 Cup

Cook the channa dhal in pressure cooker till it is soft.
Grind the channa dhal along with grated coconut and cardamon without adding water to fine paste
Then add the jaggery and mix it with the ground paste
Puranam is ready.

Mix the maida with oil and turmeric and add little water. The dough should be like chapati dough. Keep it aside for at-least 30 mins.
Make small balls from the dough. Roll each ball like Poori and stuff the purnam inside the balls and then roll again.
Then put each poli in the pan and add little and fry one side. Turn other side and add some ghee and fry it.
The delicious Purana Poli is ready to serve.
Add a tsp of ghee before you serve.

Wish you all a very Happy Bhogi!
