Puram Puri / Puran Poli

Well!!! What can I say about Puram Puri. I just love them. I always make extra stuffing so that its left over and I can eat later on. :))))

Preparation Time: 40-50 min
Cooking Time: 30 min
Serves: 4-5 (makes about 6 savory puris and about 10 sweet puris)


1.5 cup Chana Dal - 1 cup for sweet and 1/2 cup for savory puris
3 cups water
1 tblsp Ghee
1 cup sugar
1 tsp elaichii powder
2 cups Atta / Whole Wheat flour OR 1 cup wheat flour and 1 cup maida


Chana Dal stuffing

  1. Pressure cook Chana dal with water for about 20-25 minutes.
  2. Strain the dal.
  3. Heat ghee in a pan and add cooked dal.
  4. Mash well. Fry till desired consistency is achieved. It should be dry enough so that it doesn't come out when rolling.
  5. Remove about 1/2 cup worth chana dal - for savory puris
  6. To make sweet puris, add sugar and fry till all the extra water due to sugar has evaporated. Add elaichii. Mix well and keep aside.
  7. To make savory puris, to the separated dried dal, add 1/4 tsp, hing, 1/2 tsp sof powder, 1/2 tsp amchur powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala, salt and mix well.
Make puris or rotis

  1. Knead atta with ghee and water to make a soft dough.
  2. You can either make puris or rotis(poli). When making puris, roll 2 puris, place 1 puri flat and place a little stuffing in the center, cover with the second puri and seal the ends. Deep fry this in hot oil.
  3. When making roti (poli), take a little dough, flatten it a little with hand, place a little stuffing in the center and seal all the ends together bringing them on top of the stuffing like a parantha. Fry it in a pan using a little oil/ghee.
