Hoorna Holige(Puran Poli)
- 2 cups of pressure cooked chana dal
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1/4 cup of grated dry coconut
- 2 cups of maida
- 1/2 cup of oil
- water(approximately 1/4 cup)
- 1/2 tsp of turmeric
1.Remove the water from the cooked chana dal.(You can use that water for Kattu saaru)Mash the cooked chana dal thoroughly. Transfer the mashed stuff to a non-stick cooking pan and put it on a medium set stove. Add sugar and coconut and mix it well. Allow it to boil and allow it thicken. Once it gets thickened allow it to cool. Make small balls out of it.
2.Meanwhile, make a poli dough by taking maida(all purpose flour), turmeric, and oil. Add water bit by bit until it forms into a soft dough. It should be soft and a bit oily.
3.Heat the griddle or tava(pan) on the stove top. Take a small ball size dough and roll it. Take puran(hoorna) ball and stuff it in the dough and seal it. Dust the dough with rice flour and start rolling it. Roll it nicely and place it on a pan.Pour 1 tsp of ghee onto it. Flip it over and allow it to get cooked thoroughly. Roughly it will take about 3-5 min for each poli.
While serving apply a tsp of ghee.(Forget about the fat! )
