  • 1 cup - all - purpose flour/maida (sifted)
  • 1 cup - Bengal gram dal
  • 1 cup - grated jaggery
  • 1/2 cup - grated coconut, fresh preferred (but in case of non availability, frozen can be used too)
  • 1/2 tsp - cardamom powder
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • Approx. 1-2 tbsp - broken cashews

How to Make Puran Poli

  • Mix flour, turmeric and 1 tbsp of vegetable oil (optional), mix well and add water as needed to make into a soft pliable dough. Set aside covered with a cloth.
  • Meanwhile in a saucepan, boil Bengal gram in 2 cups of water until soft.
  • Drain the lentil well and then drop it back into the saucepan along with jaggery, coconut and cardamom powder.
  • Mix well until the jaggery melts and all the ingredients come together into one harmonious mass.
  • Cool it lightly and then grind this mixture in food processor without adding any water.
  • Toast the cashews (dry roast/in ghee) and then add it to the lentil-jaggery mixture.
  • Now take a small lime sized ball from the dough. Roll it out into a small circle.
  • Similarly make a small ball from the lentil mixture and place it in the middle of the dough.
  • Bring the end of the dough to the centre on top of the lentil mixture, pinch them together and then press it down into a flatbread.
  • Now lightly roll it out into a flatbread. It does not matter if a circle is not perfect. You can roll it as thinly or as thick you desire.
  • Place it a griddle, spoon some ghee all around it and cook until golden brown.
  • Turn it around and similarly cook until golden brown/reddish.
