Carrot poli

This recipe was requested by Chitra of Ratatouille-Anyone can cook blog ..


4 carrots-peeled and boiled
3 tsp sugar (adjust as per taste)
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 cup maida/all purpose flour
Pinch of salt
2 tsp oil

Make a dough of maida, salt and water. Add the oil and mix well to the dough. Keep aside covered with wet cloth for 1/2 hour.

Grind the carrots along with sugar without adding water. Now heat 1 tsp ghee and add this carrot paste and cook well till it gets thick and forms a big lump. Add cardamom powder and keep aside till it cools down. Make small balls of it.
Make balls of the maida dough and pat it to small and thick rounds using little oil. Use a greased plastic sheet for this. Keep the carrot balls in the center.

Cover it with the dough from all sides and dust it with little maida. Roll it slowly into thick chapati trying that the carrot mixture doesnt come out much.

Cook this on a hot tava on low flame with little ghee till brown spots come on both sides.
