Puran Poli or Vedhmi is a Sweet version of stuffed chapati from the Gujarat in the Indian subcontinent. It is mainly stuffed with toor dal but some people uses chana dal also.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 1/2 kg wheat flour (maida)
  • 1/2 kg pigeon peas (toor dal)
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp ghee
  • 1/2 kg brown sugar (jaggery)
  • 100 ml oil
  • Salt to taste.

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Wash and boil the toor dal with water and 1/2 tsp salt till it becomes soft.
  2. Cool slightly and strain the dal using a strainer.
  3. Add cardamom powder and Jaggery and grind to make fine paste. If the paste is sticky, keep it on fire to dry up completely. This is known as "puran".
  4. Knead 1/2 kg maida with water and 1/2 tsp salt. Do not make it hard.
  5. Add oil and knead the maida again till oil gets absorbed.
  6. Prepare equal number of balls from maida and puran.
  7. Roll out maida balls to make small un-cooked chapati.
  8. Stuff these uncooked chapati with "Puran" ball.
  9. Roll them again into stuffed chapati just like stuffed paratha. It is called "Poli".
  10. Heat a griddle and roast each "Poli".
  11. Apply ghee on both sides when done.

Vedhmi or Puran Poli is now ready to serve.
