I made this yesterday for Holi. Traditionally puran poli is made but I didnt find the time for it. Maybe next time!


1) 1 cup chana daal
2) 1 1/2 cup water
3) Elaichi powder (2-3 elaichies)
4) 1 cup sugar
5) 1/2 spoon ghee


1) Pressure cook chana daal just a little and drain excess water
2) Added sugar to chana daal and cook on low heat till the mixture starts thickening
3) Add elaichi powder and stir it in and cook some more
4) Once in the serving plate, garnish with ghee and serve hot

Credits: Again, mom's recipe and her suggestion to make it for Holi. So thanx to her for that and all the other times she has made puran and puran poli and "kata chi amti" from the excess water that comes out of cooking the chana daal. :)
