  • First of all finely chopped all vegetables in food processor and keep aside.

  • Then add chopped vegetables to the pan. Mix all ingredients very well. Cover and cook them for 4-5 minutes, then add all other spices. Then add chopped tomato. Cover pan with lid and let them simmer for 6-7 minutes. Then add half of the coconut milk and cook for another 5 minutes.

  • Then remove the pan from flame. Let it cool for a while. Then remove cloves, bay leaves by hand. Then blend all mixture in a blender to fine paste. Add remaining coconut milk while blending. Add water to achieve the desired consistency. Then add salt, pepper of needed.

  • Garnish this soup with finely chopped coriander and serve hot.

Puran Poli, Tandlache Thalipeeth and Gulachi Poli

You all must be wondering why I am posting these recipes again. There is a good reason behind this. When I read that Srivalli , the one who hosted Grand Dosa Mela last month is hosting Roti Mela this month, I thought I will send her my previously posted Indian Bread recipes first. So I am writing this post. Puran Poli & Tandalache Talipeeth are my favourite Indian bread varieties.

Puran Poli (also known as Obbattu, Baksham ) is a traditional Indian Bread prepared in Maharashtra, Gujrath & South India. Mostly this Poli is served during auspicious occasions and important festivals. There are different variations according to region. In Maharashtra we mostly use Chick Pea & Jaggery stuffing. Here is the recipe of my version of Puran Poli

Tandlache Thalipeeth which is also known as Rice Flour Roti. Just like rice flour, you can use any type of flour and make roti. You can add different types of chopped vegetables or leftover sabjis in it. So here is my version of Tandlache Thalipeeth (Rice Flour Roti)

These are my first two entries for Roti Mela. I am going to send more entries so stay tunned. You can also send your entries. The last date of recipe submittion is 20th June

I want to add one more my favorite indian bread here which is already posted. This one is Gulachi -Shengdana Poli (Jaggery - Peanut Roti). We usually make this Roti at the time of Sankranti. This roti is useful in winter weather. You can make these rotis for long travel.
