Bobbatulu /Puran Poli

Bobbatulu /Puran Poli
This I can vouch as a our family's favorite sweet, this always is made during special occasions and festivals. Though the process of making might be a little intimidating the end result is just delicious.The best part about this sweet is the purnam/puran can be made in advance and refrigerated and can be used to make Bobbatulu/poli right when guest arrive.Coconut in added in karnataka cooking however that is optional. Also this can be made with sugar or jaggery. My recipe for today is made of sugar.

Ingredients for Puranam/Puran
1 cup Channa dal
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp of finely ground elachi powder
Process to make purnam
1. pressure cook channa dal untill 3 whistles
2. once done drain the water completely out and make sure there is no water in the boiled channa and mash into a fine paste with a potato masher
3. In a pan add sugar and about few 5 tbsp on water and boil till all the sugar melts and it turns syrupy
4. To this syrup add mashed channa paste and mix well
5. Keep stirring for about 3 minutes till the paste thickness and forms a thick paste
remove from heat and allow to cool

For making attu/poli
1. Mix 1 cup of maida with about 1/4 cup water add a pinch of salt and 1tbsp of sugar
2. This should be of chapati/roti consistency
3. Pour about 1/4 cup of oil over the dough and allow it to rest for a while
To make bobbatulu/Pooran Poli
1. take a small portion of purnam/puran and roll into a ball
2. take a small portion of dough and cover the puran ball completely
3. roll the ball flat either with a belan or with hand
4. Heat tava and and place bobbatu/pooran poli
5. Fry on both sides
6. Add a little bit of oil/ghee for making the sides a little crispy

Serve hot, these will practically melt in your mouth. Pooran as mentioned stores well for about a week or so in a air tight container in a refrigerator

The puran polis look so good. A big favourite in our family.
BTW, the polis are quite freezer friendly.

Love poli. I have one question though. When i make poli here it shrinks way too small in size. Is it bcoz of the flour? I used maida from Indian stores. I never had this problem in India.

I just made puran poli today, and then I came on here and saw your recipe! I use jaggery in mine, and I add coconut too. Also, I have always put a little turmeric in the poli dough. It makes them a beautiful yellow colour!
