Puran Poli/Boli


1 cup all purpose flour
A pinch of salt
A bit of turmeric powder
4 tsp Oil

For filling -

1 cup greengram dal / bengalgram dal ( The healthier version is of greengram dal, but with regards to taste, bengalgram dal is best)
1 cup Jaggery
2 tsp grated coconut
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Soak the dal for about 2 hrs. Cook the same for 5 minutes and drain out the water and grind it to a smooth paste. Add the jaggery, coconut and grind again. Add cardamom powder and make medium sized balls of it. (In case it is watery, cook on low heat for five minutes or until thick)

Add turmeric and salt to the all purpose flour and form a soft dough with water. Add the oil and mix well. Keep covered for about 2 hrs. Make small balls of these.

Take two plastic sheets and grease them with little oil. Place the all purpose flour balls on one sheet, cover with another and roll out into a small round with thin edges. Now place the filling balls in the center and cover it well with the dough. Dip in little maida and again roll it out into thin chapatis.

Heat tava and cook these thin bolis on low heat. Add ghee to the sides and when both the sides start getting brown spots, the bolis are done.

While serving, add a bit of ghee to it.
