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.
Maida: ½ cupAtta: 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.
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.
