How to make Sanjyachi Poli - Sweet Flatbread

  1. Take flour, little salt and oil in a big bowl. Mix well, then start adding small amount of water incrementally and knead into a soft dough like we prepare for making chapatis.
  2. Time to prepare the Stuffing mixture ( Sanja) now. :- Heat 2 tbsp ghee in the heavy bottomed pan.
  3. Roast the sooji on medium flame till a nice aroma comes and becomes golden brown.
  4. Add in water ( Normal water, no need to use hot water) and jaggery, Stir and mix well to avoid lumps. Cover and cook for a minute.
  5. Quickly it will be more like liquid. Don’t panic. Keep stirring on slow flame.
  6. Add in Cardamom powder and mix well. Keep mixing again for a minute and then switch off the gas. Let it cool a bit.
  7. Make lemon sized round balls out of the dough.
  8. Take one dough ball, sprinkle some wheat flour over it and roll into approx. 4-5 inch diameter circle. Put 2 tbsp. Sanja (stuffing) in the center.
  9. Seal it by gathering edges into the center completely.
  10. Flatten it using hands, sprinkle some flour over it and roll again into 6 inch diameter circular shape.
  11. Heat a tawa/frying pan to fry the sanjyachi poli over medium flame.
  12. In above material it makes around 8 Sanja polis.
  13. Roast the polis from both sides applying some ghee. Serve hot or cool as u like.
  14. Very good option for kids tiffin.

My Tip:

Use sooji of fine texture (Barik sooji/Barik rawa).
