  1. Pooran Poli the name itself attracts everyone . Very well made polis with Channa daal . I have made the same polis the Gujju way with toor daal . Strange how this sweet poli has different names in different states and are stuffed with various daals .

  2. whole wheat pura poli came out perfect. I too like adding some aromatic ingredient. surely this fennel seed addition will give a taste.

  3. Wonderfully made and the pictures have come out so well. Good that you have documented what’s it’s called in different state. Whatever name this is a sinful dish.
