Coconut Poli - Bhogi special


Hi

We like most of south Indians have a tradition of making Poli(Indian sweet flat bread) on the day of Bhogi(a day prior to pongal).Coconut poli is one of the easier varieties of poli and is loved by everyone at home.

INGREDIENTS
FOR THE FILLING
Coconut scrapping 1 cup

Powdered Jaggery 3/4 cup - 1 cup

Water 1 tbsp

Cardamom powder 2 tsp


FOR THE COVERING

All purpose flour 1 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder a pinch

Water 1/2 cup

salt a pinch

Oil 1 tbsp


PREPARATION

Mix all the ingredients for the covering with the required amount of water ( you might need 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup)into a very soft pliable dough. Apply oil on it(well covered) and let it rest for an hour for the gluten to form



In a pan mix both the coconut and jaggery and cook it on medium flame.Add the cardamom powder and stir well. In the beginning the jaggery tends to become liquid, on further cooking the moisture is absorbed and it becomes a homogeneous mixture. When all the moisture is absorbed, remove from fire and let it cool


Make a lemon sized ball of the covering dough and a small ball of the filling(poornam)

Roll the covering into a small circle using the flour for dusting

Keep the filling inside, cover it from all sides, pinch the extra dough off and roll into a ball again.


Now roll this filled ball into a circle taking care not to make it very thin as the filling might get burnt when cooked.


Cook it in medium flame on both sides for 2 minutes.

Apply ghee for both sides and serve warm

You will love this:-)


WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY PONGAL!!!!!!!!!!
