The perfect preparation of Puran Poli is considered a highly-skilled task… an art actually! unlike Maharashtrian Puran Poli which uses chana dal, the Gujarati version makes use of toovar dal.

Its unique flavour and characteristic aroma can be attributed to the special Indian spices used.

You can also try other traditional Gujarati rotis like Padvali Roti, it tastes great with Aamras and Satpadi Roti which tastes awesome as it is or can be enjoyed with any subzi.

Liked Puran Poli, then try our Gujarati Rotis

  1. If you liked Puran Poli (Gujarati style puran poli), then try our huge collection of Gujarati rotis, theplas. Some of them are:

For the Dough of the Puran Poli

  1. Take a deep bowl and add the whole wheat flour to it.
  2. Add the oil to it. The oil adds softness to the dough.
  3. Knead into a soft dough using approximately 1 cup of water. Always add water little by little as excess water will make the dough sticky and extra soft which will make it difficult to roll.
  4. Divide the dough into 15 equal portions and keep aside.

For the filling for Puran Poli

  1. To make the Puran Poli, wash the toovar dal very well atleast 2 to 3 times in enough water.
  2. Drain the dal and keep aside.
  3. In a small bowl, put the saffron. Saffron or Kesar not only gives a winderful color but also gives a unique taste to the filling.
  4. To this add 2 tsp of warm water and rub the saffron. By doing this, we are releasing the color from the saffron. Keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. to make the filling of the Puran Poli, in a presser cooker, add the toovar dal. This is a gujarati style puran poli which uses this dal but maharashtrians make it with chana dal.
  6. Add 1½ cups of water.
  7. Mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  8. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. This is very important as otherwise the dal won't cook properly.
  9. Take a broad non-stick pan and heat the ghee in it. Ghee gives a wonderful flavor to the Puran Poli.
  10. To this, add the dal.
  11. Now add the jaggery. You can use sugar as well but jaggery is the traditional way of making it.
  12. Mix well.
  13. Cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes or till the mixture thickens, while stirring continuously and mashing at regular intervals. You know it is cooked when the mixture starts leaving the pan.
  14. Now add the saffron-water mixture.
  15. Mix well to incorporate.
  16. Transfer to a plate and let it cool slightly.
  17. If the mixture shapes into a ball without sticking to your hand, if it perfect.

How to proceed for the Puran Poli

  1. Roll out one portion of the dough into a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  2. Place a portion of the filling in the center.
  3. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling.
  4. Pinch the edges together to seal the filling.
  5. Flatten the dough and roll again into a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle, using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  6. Cook on a tava (griddle) over a medium flame, till the Puran Poli (Gujarati style puran poli) turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
  7. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling to make 14 more puran polis.
  8. Smear a little ghee on each Puran Poli (Gujarati style puran poli) and serve hot.
