Puran Poli (Sweet Flatbread – Indian)

Puran poli is another of my favorite sweets. It is prepared for festivals and special occasions. However, I like to make extra stuffing (purnam/puran) to be used even later 🙂 . Traditional ways of making puran poli/boli use a stuffing of:
a)     Coconut and Jaggery
b)     Coconut and White Sugar
c)     Lentils/Dal (usually split Bengal gram) and Jaggery 

Mine is a twist on the traditional ones 🙂 as usual … I use whole wheat flour (aata) that we use for chapattis/parathas. Also, for the stuffing, I use equal portions of dal and coconut along with jaggery. This makes the puran poli soft though I use whole wheat flour rather than plain flour (maida) and less oil/ghee.
