Adding coconut to the paruppu makes the taste outstandingly good.Always cook and mash the dal to perfection so that while rolling the poli there will be no lumps. You can use sugar instead of jaggery or half and half of jaggery and sugar. I have used only ghee for both making and kneading the dough for that outstanding flavour.Sometimes they add even rava with maida to make this puran poli.

Notes

The dough to be made should be softer than the chappathi dough and marination is most important. The stuffing should be without lumps as you may not be able to roll and we can’t make perfect poli’s. While adding jaggery please adjust according to your taste. As you soak the dough for the longer time the poli’s will also be softer and will melt in your mouth. Some add sooji in equal portions but I have not tried it. Adding turmeric may be optional but it gives the exact look and appeal.
