1/2 kg lentils (dhal)
1/2 kg. Cane sugar (jaggery)
1/2 kg plain flour (maida)
100 ml. oil
1 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 teaspoon hydrogenated oil (ghee)
Wash gram dal and boil this with half tea sp.salt and water till it is very soft.
When it is slightly cold strain and add jaggery and grind to a fine paste.
If it is sticky put it on a low fire and dry up completely. This is called puran.
Knead maida with half teaspoon salt with water. It should be neither very hard
or too soft. Add oil and knead it till oil is absorbed and now do equal balls of
puran and kneaded maida. Roll maida ball into a small puri. Fill it with puran ball.
MAKE it into a ball and roll to a poli. Put on the pan and fry it dry turning
both sides. Eat this melted with pure ghee.
It is delicious eaten hot and with a nice cup of tea.
