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 sieve to mash it uniformly. i would not recommend to use the masher to mash it as it may be uneven. lastly, the poli’s can be stored and preserved for 1-2 weeks in refrigerator. while serving heat it in microwave or in pan for 60-90 secs.
