Kadalaiparuppu Poli / Puran Poli

Channa Dhal-1cup
Jaggery-1 to 1/4cup (adjust according to your sweet tooth! :) )
Dry coconut powder-1 tablespoon
Ghee-2 tablespoons

All purpose flour/Maida -1cup
Rice Flour-1tablespoon
Rava/Sooji -2 teaspoons
Salt- a pinch
Turmeric powder -1/4teaspoons

Combine the all purpose flour,turmeric powder,rice flour,rava,salt in a wide bowl, mix well, add the water and knead it into a soft dough.Add the oil/ghee and knead it again for a few minutes.
Coat the dough with little oil and keep it covered for at least 20 minutes.

Pressure cook the channa dhal with enough water for 3whistles. Open the cooker and drain the dhal and let it cool.

Grind the dhal with elaichi. (without adding water).

Heat the jaggery with 1/4cup of water on low heat it till the jaggaery dissolves. Strain the impurities if any, then add the mashed dhal. Mix it well.

Now add the coconut powder,give a quick stir and put off the flame. Let the mixture cool completely. Then make small balls and keep aside.
Make small balls out of the all purpose flour, flatten them a little bit and stuff the channa dhal. Repeat the process and finish off.
Heat a griddle on medium heat..flatten the poli's with your fingers.
Cook them with drizzling the ghee on both sides, till the poli's turn nice golden color.
Let the poli's cool completely then transfer them to an airtight box. They tastes great on the next day. Stays good at room temperature for 1-2 days..if you are keeping it for more time, keep it refrigerated.
Soft delicious poli's are ready! Enjoy! :)
