puran poli recipe | how to make puran poli | maharashtrian pooran poli with step by step photo and video recipe. indian sweets are mainly targeted and prepared during the festival seasons like holi, diwali and ganesh chathurthi. moreover, each state has its delicacy and sweets recipe dedicated for each occasion and celebration. puran poli recipe hails from the marathi cuisine and is typically made for holi & diwali.

there are many versions of poli recipes and i have already posted 2 versions of them. both these 2 versions belong to karnataka cuisine and are mainly made with maida/plain flour with chana dal and coconut stuffing. but this version is completely different and i have made it with a combination of wheat and plain flour. at first, you may easily get confused with any paratha recipe or dal paratha recipe. the texture and appearance are very similar but differs from stuffing. in addition, while the poli recipe from my home state karnataka is more sweet and thin compared to the maharashtrian version of puran poli. and hence, it may also be served for breakfast and not just limited as a dessert recipe.
puran poli sweet furthermore some tips, suggestions and recommendations for a perfect puran poli recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used the combination of wheat flour and maida in a 2:½ ratio which gives a perfect texture to poli. having said that, it can also be prepared with just wheat flour or maida flour. secondly, once the chana dal is cooked with jaggery, pass it through a sieve to mash it uniformly. i would not recommend using the masher to mash it as it may be uneven. lastly, the poli’s can be stored and preserved for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator. before serving, heat it in the microwave or in a pan for 60-90 secs.
