No festive menu in Maharashtra is complete without Puran Poli! Whole wheat flour polis with a succulent stuffing of cooked and sweetened chana dal are a delight to bite into, especially when they are hot and fresh off the tava, resplendent with the rich aroma of ghee.
You won’t need to use ghee to cook the Puran Poli, but it is a must to brush the poli with ghee after cooking and also to serve with another dollop of ghee! Enjoy the perfectly balanced sweetness and amazing texture of this traditional Maharashtrian delicacy.
