This dry the cooked dhal should be
This is how stuffing should be after dhal mixed and cooked with Jaggery
150 gram dry Channa dhal
150 – 175 gram Jaggery / Palm sugar (you change sweetness accordingly, we like them just there, not real sweet so we opted for 150 gram)
Cook Channa dhal till is soft and dry (not soggy). (Important point here add water just for it to cook, less amount than when making normal dhal)
Once it is cooked, still hot, smash it very well and let them to cool.
In a heavy bottom pan, add Jaggery and let them slowly melt (Just in case if they don’t melt evenly, add may be few table spoon of water which helps to melt faster)
Once jaggery is in running consistency, slowly add in cooked dhal and keep stirring.
Soon after both jaggery and dhal is mixed they will appear in liquid form, don’t worry, keep stirring on medium or low heat, till water evaporates and they become like soft soggy dough. Now let it cool in refrigerator for a while so it hardens.
For outer dough.
250 gram Mida
1 tbspn of Ghee (clarified butter)
Pinch of salt
Required water ( Dough should be smiliar to dough for roties/ chapatti )
Knead the dough for while, so it become more elastic and super soft.
Now make balls from channa dhal and jaggery mixture, desired size.
Similar make balls from mida dough, one size larger.
Next roll mida dough to small disc, to fit in the dhal stuffing.
Enclose the stuffing inside the mida dough and very carefully seal the outer surface.
Use some dry mida and the rolling pin to roll the puran polies to larger disc, not too thin, very carefully. Use enough amount of dry mida it to prevent sticking to the surface.
Cook the rolled puran polies on preheated skillet, use oil or ghee according to your taste till it cooked on the surface and they slowly starts to char.
Serve it hot with ghee/clarified butter!
Note, mida quantity depends on how think or thin you want the outer layer to be. So mida quantity may vary according to your choice.
