The perfect preparation of puran poli is considered a highly-skilled task… an art actually! unlike maharashtrian puran poli which uses chana dal, the gujarati version makes use of toovar dal. Its unique flavour and characteristic aroma can be attributed to the special indian spices used.
Puranpoli is a traditional maharashtrian dish, and variants of it are made all over the country. It is a wholesome and delicious snack made of chana dal and coconut sweetened with jaggery and flavoured mildly with spices like elaichi. While it is festive fare, it can be made any day when you feel like making something special.
Puran Poli is a Maharashtrian sweet flat bread stuffed with Chana dal, jaggery, sesame and poppy seeds mixture. Delicious to eat on it's own or dipped in a spicy Katachi Amti, it is a delight to savour.
