  • 1 tsp - elaichi (cardamom powder)
  • 150 gm - plain flour

  • How to Make Plain Puranpoli:

    1. Boil dal in plenty of water till soft
    2. Drain in a colander for 10-15 minutes.
    3. Pass through an almond grater, a little at a time, till all the dal is grated.
    4. Mash jaggery till the lumps break. Mix well with the dal.
    5. Put the mixture in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook till it forms a soft lump
    6. Take care to stir continuously, so as not to char. Keep aside.
    7. Mix the ghee and flour, and add enough water to make a soft, pliable dough.
    8. Take a morsel-sized ball of dough, roll into a 4-inch circle.
    9. Place a morsel-sized ball of filling in the centre and seal.
    10. Re-roll carefully into a 6-inch diameter circle.
    11. Roast on a warm griddle till golden brown.
    12. Flip and repeat.
    13. Serve with a tsp. of ghee applied on top.
    14. OR
    15. Shallow fry on a griddle (like a paratha) for better flavour. However, this method translates to more ghee and, therefore, calories.
    16. Serve hot with dal or amti.
