Gulachi (Gur/Jaggery) Poli


For Stuffing :
2 cup grated Gur (Jaggery)
1/4 cup dried shredded Coconut
1/4 cup ground Peanuts
1/2 cup ground Sesame Seeds
1 tbs Poppy Seeds
1/2 cup Besan
1 tsp Cardamom Powder
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

For Cover:
3 cup Wheat Flour
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

1. Fry shredded coconut & poppy seeds seperately till it get light brown. Let it cool. Grind both and keep aside.
2. Fry besan in small amount of oil till it turns light brown.
3. Take pan away from gas then add jaggery, coconut, poppy seed powder, cardamom powder, sesame seeds. Add small amount of salt. Mix it well.
4. If this mixture is too dry, add small amount of oil and mix well. Keep aside.
5. Now knead a dough of wheat flour with slight touch of oil and keep aside for few minutes.
6. To start with poli knead a dough more smoother than normal (previous one) using water.
7. Now make even size small balls of the dough. Then roll each of them into a round shape of just 2 inch in diameter.
8. Also roll the mixture of sesame, coconut , jaggery etc. into a round shape (smaller than dough roll ). Make sure this mixture is smooth enough to roll and fill in rolled dough.
9. Close it from all sides forming a ball. Then start roling the ball and prepare a normal size poli of that.
10. Heat the Tawa on medium gas and put this poli on it. Roast it like a normal poli/chapati.
11. Thus when both sides are cooked remove it and keep each poli on a seperate paper(not on the dish ). Allow it to cool down so that it takes it's tough texture (like papad).
12. Then serve with ghee.

Hi Trupti,

This is a new kind of poli to me. I'm used to the ordinary poli (boli, as we call it). This really sounds interesting with the peanuts and stuff in it :-)
