Tried and tasted by Nivedita
The Shravan Month has started and the sweets are here:-), I love sweets..
One more delicious sweet from Gujarat. As per my knowledge, puranpoli is very common in all the parts of India. But when I was browsing for Gujarati sweets, I saw this sweet in all the sites I visited. Then I thought of making the puran poli with sweet potatoes. And they were yumm.
Here is the recipe.
Sweet potatoes - 3 to 4
Jaggery - as per the quantity you get from mashed potatoes
Salt a pinch
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
For the cover or poli
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Maida or APF - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Water to make the dough
Oil to shallow fry the poli.
Take the flours, oil and salt in a plate or a bowl. Add water to make soft dough. Keep it aside for half an hour.
Boil the sweet potatoes and allow to cool.
Grate the jaggery and keep.
Mash the boiled potatoes. Add the jaggery, salt and cardamom powder. Mix well. Divide into equal small size balls.
Take the ready dough, divide it into tiny balls.(half the size of normal small lemon)
Take dough ball and roll into a small puri.
Take the potato ball and keep in the middle. Cover it and make the stuffed ball ready.
Use oil to roll into small puran poli.
Heat tawa and roast the poli on both the sides till golden color.
Serve hot with ghee, pickle and fried dry stuffed chillies...
