Khajur Puran Poli (Sweet Flatbread with Date)

Puran poli or sweet flatbread is a famous calorie loaded dish across different states of India, which is relished during various festivals. It has different names in different states like “puran poli” in Maharashtra, “vedmi” in Gujarat, “bobbatlu” in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana etc. Originally the recipe calls for a flatbread prepared from all-purpose flour and stuffed with mixture of cooked yellow gram (chana daal), jaggery and cardamom powder. And the bread is then roasted using ghee. The flavour may vary slightly from state to state.

Here I have  used whole wheat flour for the flatbread and date, raisin, brown sugar for the stuffing.

Ingredients:

  1. Whole wheat flour – 3 cups
  2. Water – 1 cup approx
  3. Salt – a pinch
  4. Date (seedless) – 5 to 6
  5. Raisins – 150 grams
  6. Brown Sugar – 3 tsp (can be adjusted as per desired sweetness)
  7. Ghee – 2 tbsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Make soft dough using whole wheat flour, a pinch of salt and water (the way it’s done for making rotis). Once dough is ready, grease it with little ghee and keep aside covered. DSC04107
  2. Grind date, raisin and brown sugar together. If brown sugar is not available, white sugar can also be used. Take the sweet mix out in a bowl.
  3. Make medium sized balls from the wheat dough.
  4. Take one ball and roll it by dusting some wheat flour as needed. Roll it till approximately 5 centimeter diameter.
  5. Then put a small portion of the sweet mix in the middle of our flatbread and cover from all sides to form a ball again.
  6. Now gently roll the stuffed dough ball to desired thickness. Dust with loose flour as and when required during rolling. Do not panic if the stuff oozes out from some places. That’s normal and keep the flatbread slightly thick.
  7. Heat a tawa and then place the flatbread on it. Let it be roasted on medium flame and flip it and let the other side be roasted.
  8. Now brush ghee on both sides of the flatbread and let it be roasted for few more minutes.
  9. Hot khajur puran poli is ready to be served. DSC04126
