how to make Puran Poli Recipe | Bakshalu

Puran Poli / Holigeis a sweet flat bread, mainly prepared in festive occasions like Diwali in Maharashtra.. This sweet dish is called by different names in different parts of India. Puran Poliin Maharashtra, Vedmiin Gujarat, Boliin Kerala and Tamil Nadu, Bobbatlu / Bakshaluin Telugu, Obbattuin Karnataka. Ingredients might also vary, like in Maharashtra, its prepared with chana dal while in Gujarat, tur dal is used. However, the main ingredients are wheat flour, jaggery, yellow gram and cardamom. In Tamil Nadu, you will get to buy this poli, which is made of all-purpose flour.


This sweet was introduced to me by my college bestie, when she brought it for her friends as to share the Diwali sweet. This is usually served after the main meal or as an evening snacks. As Diwali is nearing, I thought of preparing this as my first diwali sweet for you guys..




Lot of variations are added to this dish. Like some people use moong dal or other lentils instead of using only tur / chana dal. Some add coconut or even dates as an additional stuffing ingredient. Some people roll it into thin polis, while others thick.  Here, I have used fennel and a pinch of nutmeg powder. Try it out and let me know how it comes out for you..
