Directions

Step 1

Boil the gram with plenty of water. When nicely cooked, strain.

Step 2

Add water once again, boil & drain.

Step 3

Add sugar & nutmeg powder to the cooked gram & keep on low heat till the mixture becomes semi solid. Stir constantly.

Step 4

Remove from fire & grind to a fine paste.

Step 5

Add kesari powder to the maida flour and with a little water and make into a dough.

Step 6

Pour gingelly oil into the dough & knead it, until it becomes very soft. Keep it aside for 2 or more hours.

Step 7

Make equal number of balls with the dough & the gram mixture.

Step 8

Take a ball of gram, cover it with maida ball & turn onto a floured board (rice flour to be used on the board) & roll out as thinly as possible.

This is an excellent recipe and is purely south indian ..... this is not maharashtrian puran poli bcos puranpoli is made of jaggery instead of sugar.

Tip: Instead of 2 cups of bengal gram u can use 1 cup of kadalai paruppu + 1 cup of siru paruppu.

This boli is actually the maharashtrian puranpoli(the name got changed by the time it reached all the way to Kerala I suppose). But yes, good work... only if you cannot roll it out well, then........then u will be left with all puran and no poli

Very tasty sweet, but very hard to prepare esp. the grinding the gram mixture to paste.
