Sweet Poli

RM#2 Day 24

For Dough
All purpose Flour/Maida - 3cups
Turmeric - 1/2tsp
Salt a pinch
Oil - 1/2cup

For the Dal filling
Bengal Gram/Channa Dal - 21/2cups
Jaggary-21/2 cups
Cardamom powder a pinch
Oil for frying

For the dough

1.Take the maida in a big bowl to that add a pinch of salt, turmeric and mix well. Slowly add the oil to the flour and rub well.
2.Then add water slowly to get a soft dough. Knead well. The consistency should not be sticky but rather very loose but soft. This needs to be kneaded well Add some more oil on the top and let it rest for about 1hour.

For the Dal filling

1.Wash and soak the Bengal Gram for minimum 15 mins. Then pressure cook it with enough water to get soft dal.
2.Normally jaggary will have lot of impurities in it. So we grate and cook it in water and sieve the impurities before adding to the dal.
3.Add this jaggary to the cooked dal and pressure again. This will make both the dal and jaggary well mixed.
4.Once its cooled, grind to a smooth consistency but though not like a paste.And take them into a plate.
5.Divide the mixture which we have grounded into equal balls to be stuffed into the dough.

Heat a tawa and simmer it so that its hot by the time you have the poli rolled out. Add oil everytime before placing the uncooked poli. This way it will not get struck to the pan.
add oil on the plastic sheet, which ever you are using. Take a portion of the dough, spread it on the plastic paper and place the dal filling in middle. Cover it with the dough, remove the excess dough
Add oil, and using fingers, slowly spread them out. This will get spread well, provided the dal filling is little soft and not too dry. And the maida dough has to be elastic.

Once you have the poli spread to the correct size, holding the plastic cover in the left hand, lift and remove the poli and place on the hot tawa. Sprinkle oil around the sides and let it cook on one side before flipping to the other side.

we spread ghee on each poli after removing it from the tawa. Allow it to cool on a plate before transfering into a serving bowl
This can stay good for about a week when stored in fridge. Microwave before eating
