How to Make Easy Poli
Soak the channa dal in boiling water for about 1 hour.
Decant the excess water and grind into a paste along with the coconut without adding too much water.
Mix the dal paste with jaggery and cardamom.
Heat up a heavy bottomed pan and add this mixture to it and stir over a medium flame for about 5 minutes.
When it no longer sticks to the sides of the pan, add the ghee and mix well.
Set aside to cool for some time.
Make a soft dough of the maida, adding the turmeric powder and cooking oil.
Add water little by little and mix them uniformly to form a soft dough. Set aside for some time.
Divide the sweet filling and the covering (maida dough) into equal number of balls.
Over a well-dusted rolling board, flatten out the small ball-sized quantity of the maida dough.
Place a smaller sized ball of the sweet filling and cover it completely using the flattened maida dough.
Dust well on either sides and flatten it out once again uniformly and into a thin poli.
Continue the process with the remaining dough and mixture.
Heat up a tawa and when it is very hot, place the polis one at a time and apply oil / ghee all around and cook.
Turn and cook on both sides until pink spots appear on the outer covering. Serve hot with ghee.
