For Day 2 of BM #104, I have these delicious puran polis made out of poha. I made these for Krishnashtami this year.

The filling was relatively easy to prepare and I felt that these polis were very easy to make. In fact my family couldn't guess the ingredient. Try making it and I am sure it will be a popular one.

Ingredients -

For The Filling (Poornam) - 
Atukulu / Poha 3/4 cup
Powdered Jaggery 1 cup
Almond Powder 2 Tbsp
Cardamom Powder 1/4 tsp

For the Outer Cover - 
Wheat Flour 1 1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Warm Water as needed

Method Of Preparation -

To prepare the filling (Poornam) - 
Wash and drain the poha. Set aside for 10 minutes. 

Add the jaggery powder and the drained poha and blend in a food processor. Add almond powder as well.

In a heated non stick pan or any heavy bottomed pan, add about 1/2 tsp of ghee and add the poha mixture.

Sprinkle cardamom powder and let the mixture get heated through. Keep stirring until mixture becomes stiff. Allow it to cool. 

Pinch about 10-12 small lime sized portions of the mixture and set aside.

To Prepare the Dough - 
In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, salt, turmeric and add water gradually. Knead it into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes

To Roll out the Bobbattu - 
Divide the dough into equal parts (about 10) and roll each portion of the dough into small circles. Put in a portion of the filling set aside previously and close the edges.

Roll out this ball into a thin circle like a roti making sure that the filling doesn't ooze out. Also carefully roll it so the filling spreads out evenly. [I used a puri press/tortilla press to make it simple instead of rolling it out :)]

Gently place it on a heated tawa/griddle, drizzle a little ghee/oil and cook until both the sides are light brown. 

Remove the bobbattu from the tawa. Store in an insulated container.

Continue with the rest of the dough. Serve them warm and enjoy!

  5. That sure is an innovative one and must have tasted awesome. I am not into poli making that much though I love them but my mother just needs an occasion, small or big to prepare them. I will pass on this recipe to her.
