as of now i have not shared the authentic puran poli recipe from maharashtra or saurashtra region but these chana dal paratha recipes are very similar to it. having said that i have already shared the traditional holige or obbattu recipe from karnataka which cannot be said a similar recipe but has the similar ingredients. so basically in dal ka paratha recipe, the lentil stuffing is made spicy whereas in puran poli the stuffing is sweet by mixing it with jaggery or sugar. hence i personally like the dal ka paratha recipe compared to the traditional veggie stuffed. so in a single attempt, i can prepare both puran poli and dal paratha recipe by having separate sweet and spicy chana dal stuffing.

while the recipe is extremely simple to prepare, yet some tips, recommendations and serving suggestions for dal paratha recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used chana dal or split chickpeas lentil which is a popular way of making it. having said that the same recipe can be easily extended to have the combination of lentils like toor dal, moong dal or either one of them. secondly, and perhaps more important one is to have a dry lentil stuffing. make sure you do not add water or any moisture while blending it. lastly, you can easily serve these paratha’s as it without any side dish. but it also taste’s great when served with yoghurt / curd or spicy pickle.
