Puranpoli Recipe


  • 300gms. channa (yellowgram) dal
  • 300 gms. jaggery (molasses)
  • 1 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 150 gms. plain flour
  • 1 tbsp. ghee
  • warm water to knead dough
  • ghee to serve

Method :

Boil dal in plenty of water till soft but not broken.
Drain in a colander for 10-15 minutes.
Pass through an almond grater little by little till all dal is grated.
Mash jaggery till lumps break. Mix well into dal.
Put mixture in a heavy saucepan and cook till a soft lump is formed
Take care to stir continuously, so as not to charr. Keep aside.
Mix ghee, flour, add enough water to make a soft pliable dough.
Take a morsel sized ball of dough, roll into a 4″ round.
Place same sized ball of filling in centre, life all round and seal.
Reroll carefully to a 6″ diameter round.
Roast on warm griddle till golden brown.
Repeat other side.
Take on serving plate. Apply a tsp. of ghee all over top.
Shallow fry on griddle like a paratha for a better flavour.
But this method will consume more ghee and therefore calories.
Serve hot with dal or amti.


The water drained from boiling dal is used to make the amti. ( a thin curry made using black masala, garam masala and some mashed dal.)

Making time: 45 minutes

Makes: 7-8 puranpolis

Shelflife: Best fresh (puran {filling} may be stored in the refrigerator for a week.)
