Shahi Puran Poli, Indian Sweet Roti

While the normal puran poli is made with a stuffing of sweetened coconut, the Shahi Puran Poli is a much grander version, made with sweetened and spice-tinged mawa inside.

The polis made of whole wheat flour become very soft when cooked with a stuffing of mawa, which lends its rich milky taste and succulent texture to the poli. Some amount of semolina is used in the stuffing to give volume and firmness to it.

You will thoroughly enjoy the rich, traditional taste of this Indian mithai, which is ideal to serve on any special occasion .

Rawa gives nice crunch to the recipe. And cardamom gives nice flavour.
