Ingredients

  • 3 powdered green cardamom
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • A pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoon milk
  • 2 teaspoon rice flour
  • 1 1/2 cup chana dal
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Refined oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg powder

Instructions

Step 1
Take a glass bowl and mix flour with water in it and knead it into a dough.
Step 2
Cover the dough and keep aside for an hour.
Step 3
Now cook chana dal in a pressure cooker and strain it once done.
Step 4
Transfer the dal in a bowl and add it in a pan and heat it over moderate flame once it has cooled down.
Step 5
Add sugar and 1/2 tbsp of ghee. Keep stirring.
Step 6
Cook on low flame till the mixture is soft and sticky and keep it aside once it's done.
Step 7
Now knead the dough again, adding salt, water and oil, little at a time, till the dough becomes pliable.
Step 8
Grind the dal and sugar mixture to a smooth consistency adding a little milk if it is too dry.
Step 9
Add cardamom powder and nutmeg powder.
Step 10
Now take a lump of the dough and a little larger lump of the dal mixture. Roll out two rounds from the dough on a board which has been sprinkled with rice flour. Make them into flat rounds of about 6 to 7 inch in diameter.
Step 11
Cover the rolled dough round with the dal mixture, leaving half an inch at the edges, and then cover this with the second round.
Step 12
Roll it again and seal them together and then roll out like a thick chapati.
Step 13
Heat the ghee on a hot griddle and put the puran poli on it.
Step 14
Keep pressing and turning it so that it cooks well on both sides. Also, keep adding ghee all around to brown it evenly without sticking to the griddle.
