How to make Dal Puri - Kheer

  2. Heat 1 and 1/2 tsp ghee in a pan, add in cumin seeds, bay leaf and fry it for a while.
  3. Next, add the chopped green chilies, chana dal with water, then cover and cook till the dal becomes soft.
  4. Remove the lid and let the water evaporate to make the dal dry. When the dal becomes dry, add the garam masala, chopped coriander leaves and turn off the heat.
  5. Mash the dal well to make the stuffing like puran poli or you can grind it in the mixer as well.
  6. Now divide the wheat flour dough into equal portions and make round balls out of the dough.
  7. Roll the dough in to small puris, keep a tbsp full of chana dal mixture in the middle of the puri, close it from all the sides like a ball.
  8. Now roll this dal stuffed balls in to a thick circles like stuffed parathas. Deep fry them like puris or tawa fry like parathas .
  9. Serve them hot with dum aloo and kheer.
