Biscuit Poli for Holi

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,

In North Karnataka, there is a tradition that during the Holi festival, people prepare poli or stuffed sweet paratha or (ಹೋಳಿಗೆ in Kannada). My mom wanted to make puran poli. But last week, I saw 2 packets of Complan Biscuits in the box, (which I bought 2 months back for my kids). I was thinking what can I make with that. Then, few days back I prepared Chocolate Halwa which I got from Srivalli ( here is the recipe ). There was little condensed milk left with me. So I thought of making poli using biscuit and condensed milk.
It was fun preparing as my mother also joined me and helped me to do this.












I had one Chocolate cream biscuit and one orange cream biscuit packet. First I thought I will mix both the biscuits. But my mother told me to make separate as both taste different. It was good that I listened to her.(I seldom do that!!! :-( ). 
Ingredients :
Chocolate cream biscuit - 1 packet (10 pieces were there in one packet)
Orange cream biscuit - 1 packet
Condensed milk - 3 tbsp for each biscuit
I crushed the biscuits(one by one)  and put it in a blender to make it a powder. Transfered in a plate and added condensed milk to the powder to make a dough.(you can see in the photo). Make small balls to stuff and keep it ready.
 For dough
Wheat flour - cup 
(for healthier reason, I used wheat flour, you can use all purpose flour or maida also)
Pinch of salt
Oil - 1 tsp
Mix together in a bowl and prepare soft dough and keep it aside for half an hour.












Take small ball of wheat flour dough and roll little. Keep one biscuit ball in the middle and cover the dough properly.
Roll it to make a circle. And fry it both the sides. Repeat with other balls.

I could make 4 polis from each flavor. (total 8 polis!)
My elder daughter enjoyed the Chocolate poli and my neighbor loved the orange poli. It tasted really great! I really recommend everyone to try this, especially for the kids.
I hope all of you enjoyed the colorful festival Holi. My both daughters had a blast. Here are the photos :
