Kesari Puran poli (Sooji halwa obbattu) - Navratri Special
I wish all Neivedyam visitors a very happy Dusshera/Navratri
These pretty little birds were sitting right out of my window without realising that they were being clicked.
Puran poli is made by stuffing sooji halwa which gives a very nice taste and texture and is great for neivedyam during festive season.
Sooji Halwa recipe Here. I added little turmeric (natural colour) to the halwa to get the yellow colour.
2 cups maida (all purpose flour)
1/2 tsp salt
water for making dough
2 tsp oil
Mix maida, salt and water to make a soft dough. Take a clean plastic sheet and apply oil to it as well as your hands. Make roti size balls from the dough and stuff small amount of halwa inside the dough. Gently press the stuffed dough with your hands on the plastic sheet and flatten it as much as possible. Use oil to your hands to make it flat. It takes a beautiful roti shape as shown in picture. If flattening with hand is difficult use rolling pin.
Fry it on the tava with oil as we do for parathas.
Delicious Sooji halwa pooran poli is ready!
