Sweet, delicious and nutritious too – that’s a rare combination, isn’t it? Well, it all features in the Date and Sesame Puranpoli, a traditional treat loaded with the goodness of calcium and iron from dates and sesame seeds. It wins over hearts with its nutty taste and rich aroma of til, and is so satiating that it is a meal in itself. This highly nutritious sweet is grandma’s secret prescription for sudden hunger pangs attacking pregnant women!
