How to make Puran Poli

  1. Wash and soak chana dal for an hour
  2. Add sufficient (less than double) water and cook dal with nutmeg powder in pressure cooker for 2 to 3 whistles(it should be soft)
  3. After pressure subsides open the lid and mash dal with Pav Bhaji masher. Add sugar and jaggery
  4. Mash it and cook in cooker only. Keep stirring in between
  5. Cook dal till Semi solid
  6. Put the mixture in Puran Machine and grind to a fine paste

  8. Allow it to cool completely and then make medium balls
  9. For outer covering -

  11. Add water little by little and knead a soft dough
  12. Keep it aside for some time and knead again adding some more oil
  13. Now take a very small portion of dough and make a ball.
  14. Roll out little with hands and put Puran ball
  15. Seal it from all sides
  16. Make a ball

  18. Shallow fry it in a skillet with some clarified butter (ghee) on low heat from both sides till golden
  19. It tastes awesome when served hot with some more ghee

My Tip:

Puran dries after cooling. If puran is thin and not coming together, then cook for some more time to get the right consistency
