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: 2-3


1 cup Chana Dal
3 cups water
1 tblsp Ghee
1 cup sugar
1 tsp elaiichi powder
2 cups Atta / Whole Wheat flour


Chana Dal sweet 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. Add sugar and fry till all the extra water due to sugar has evaporated. Add elaiichii. Mix well and keep aside.
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.


  • When making for guests, prepare dough by mixing Wheat flour and All purpose flour in the ratio of 1:2. This will make the puris crispier.
