Puran Poli is a Marathi dish. It is so delicious & easy to make also.So friends here it is:)

For the dough:
2 cups refined flour
3 tbsp oil

Wash and pressure cook the dal in 1 1/2 cups of water.Drain  excess water and keep aside. Then mash the chnna dal into a soft paste.
Heat the ghee in a pan, add the mashed channa dal and jaggery  and cook till the mixture thickens, stirring continuously.Add cardamom powder, saffron, and freshly grated nutmeg powder and mix well. Form 20 balls of equal size and put it aside.
Mix refined flour, oil, water and turmeric powder. Make very soft, sticky dough. Knead very well. Use oil to knead. Divide into 20 equal portions.
With greased palms, take one portion of dough and flatten it into a disc of the size of the palm. Roll out one portion of the dough into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle.Place a portion of the filling mixture and fold the edges of the dough over the filling.Pinch the edges together to seal the filling in.Flatten the dough and roll again into a 100 mm. (4") diameter circle.Cook on a tava over a medium flame till golden brown in colour on both sides.Repeat for the remaining dough and filling.Smear with ghee and serve .
