Sweet Potato Puranpoli

A healthy version of the traditional calorie laden puranpolis. Sweet potatoes have been used instead of dal to minimize the sugar used. Cardamom powder, nutmeg and saffron add to the pleasing aroma of these low-fat puranpolis. Enjoy them with low fat milk instead of ghee for a sweet ending!

No doubt they don't taste like our regular puranpolis although the texture and the sweetness is so close to the regular puranpoli... that you wont miss the experience... and not to forget that these puranpolis wont leave you feeling guilty, even if you have that one extra poli ..!!!
