Recipes - Puran Polli (Holige)
½ kg Bengal gram dhal
½ kg sugar
100 gms. cardamom powder
1 cup oil
Wash and boil the bengal gram dhal with 3 glasses of water. When it is cooked, drain the water. Add sugar and cardamom and cook on slow fire till sugar dissolves. Remove from fire and cool. Mix well to a soft paste.
Knead together maida and enough water to make a smooth dough. Keep on adding oil little by little till you get a soft dough. Keep aside for 5 to 6 hrs.
Smear the palm of the left hand with little ghee, and flatten on it one portion of the dough in the shape of the puri. Place a lime size ball of dhal paste in the centre. Gather up the edges of the puri, enclose the dhal paste completely and pinch the seams well together. Dust this ball with maida, and carefully roll out like a chapati. Fry this on a medium fire on a tava, turning once or twice carefully. Serve with ghee.
