Wish a Happy New Year with sweet

இனிய தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு நல்- வாழ்த்துக்கள்
Wish all readers a very Happy Tamil New Year/Happy Vishu

A sweet dish to celebrate the New Year. I made Coconut sweet polis for New year. I omitted the Chana Dhal (bengal Gram) for various reasons. I was making sambar and I don’t want the sweet polis with lentils (chana) too. The other reason, we simply love coconut. The traditional way is to pat the poli in banana leave with oily finger. I didn’t have time and want to cut the calories too…I stuffed and rolled like thin chapatis. The result , it was quick and easy with rolling method.

Dough:

Maida: ½ cup
Atta: ½ cup
Turmeric: a pinch
Salt: ¼ tsp
Water: ½ cup approx

Prepare the dough with enough water and make a soft ball and cover it . Let it rest at least for 1 hour.

Stuffing

Coconut: 1 1/2 cups freshly grated
Jaggery: ¾ cups
Green cardamom: 5 pods

Grind the jaggery and cardamom first and later add the coconut . The coconut should be little coarsely. Take the mixture and fry until it dry and come together. Cool the stuffing.

To make the polis:

Make a small ball from the dough, roll it down . Add some coconut and jaggery mixture in middle and close the edges. Now try to roll it without giving any pressure into desired thickness.

Heat a pan , fry the poli in medium heat. Smear a ghee and enjoy hot the sweet polis.

I love coconut polis,looks delecious cham

Miri said...

That looks delicious and the step by step slide makes it easier for beginners!

- I am still struggling to make those typical wheta puran polis I used to eat in Mumbai - unlike our maida coconut ones which are fried with oil, those are made with wheat flour and an almost dry chana dal jaggery filling which is just so soft and flaky and melt in your mouth

Madhavi said...
