Groundnut Poli


1 cup roasted groundnut
1 tsp roasted white sesame seeds
3/4 cup grated jaggery
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1 cup all purpose flour
A pinch of salt
A pinch of turmeric powder
2 tbsp oil

Make a dough of all purpose flour, salt, turmeric powder and water. Now add oil little by little and mix it well to get an elastic dough. Keep covered for 15 minutes.

Grind the groundnut, sesame seeds, jaggery and cardamom together.

Take a small ball of the dough and roll it into a small thick puri. Keep the groundnut filling in the center and close it well from all sides. Dust it with some rice flour and roll out into thick rotis, ensuring the filling doesnt come out.

Heat the tava and cook these on medium flame with some ghee on both sides.

Serve with some more ghee.

They make Holige with peanuts in Dharwad side. In Mysore, it's never heard of except adding Tuar or Channa dal. Great looking poli EC, good one. Bet kids love it!:))

What a lovely entry. Thank you so much. The groundnut poli is new to me. Never heard of. Two wonderful protein rich bolis. Thank you so much.

Sorry, I did not mention about the traditional Coconut stuffed boli. We usually make this or channa dal coconut jaggery hoorna (mixture) that is used for stuffing. Thanks.
