How To make Puran Poli? | Instant Puran Poli Recipe

Puran Poli is a traditional Indian sweet flatbread made during festivals and special occasions. It is a popular dish in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. The dish is made by stuffing a sweet filling made from chana dal (split Bengal gram) and jaggery (unrefined cane sugar) inside a soft and thin wheat flour dough. In this recipe, I will guide you through the step-by-step process of making Puran Poli.

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


    • 1 cup chana dal
    • 1 cup jaggery
    • 1 cup wheat flour
    • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
    • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
    • 2 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
    • Water as needed
    • Salt as needed


  • To make the filling for the Puran Poli, first rinse the chana dal thoroughly and soak it in water for at least 2 hours.
  • After soaking, drain the water and pressure cook the chana dal with 2 cups of water, turmeric powder, and salt for 4-5 whistles on medium heat. Once cooked, remove from heat and let it cool down.
  • Once cooled, transfer the cooked chana dal into a blender and blend it into a smooth paste. Keep the paste aside.
  • Next, take a pan and add jaggery and 1/4 cup of water. Heat the mixture on medium heat until the jaggery melts and becomes a syrupy consistency.
  • Add the chana dal paste to the jaggery syrup and mix well. Cook the mixture on low heat until it thickens and forms a sticky mass. Add cardamom powder and mix well. Once done, remove from heat and let it cool.
  • To make the dough for the Puran Poli, take a mixing bowl and add wheat flour, salt, and ghee. Mix well. Add water little by little and knead it into a soft and smooth dough.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, divide the dough into small equal-sized balls and the filling into small balls as well.
  • Take a dough ball and roll it into a small circle with a rolling pin. Place a filling ball in the center and seal the edges of the dough ball, making sure the filling is completely enclosed.
  • Flatten the dough ball and dust it with wheat flour. Roll it out into a thin circle, around 6-7 inches in diameter.
  • Heat a griddle or tawa on medium heat and place the rolled-out Puran Poli on it. Cook it on both sides until it turns golden brown and has brown spots on it. Spread ghee on both sides while cooking.
  • Once done, remove from heat and serve hot with ghee or milk.


  • Make sure the chana dal is soaked well before cooking.
  • Adding turmeric powder gives a nice color to the filling.
  • You can adjust the amount of jaggery according to your taste preference.
  • The dough should be soft and smooth for easy rolling.
  • Make sure to dust the dough ball with flour before rolling it out to prevent sticking.
  • Spread ghee on both sides while cooking to get a soft and flavorful Puran Poli.
  • You can also add a pinch of nutmeg powder to the filling for added flavor.


In conclusion, Puran Poli is a delicious and wholesome sweet dish that is loved by people of all ages. It requires a little bit of patience and effort, but the end result is worth it. Try making this traditional Indian dish and impress your friends and family with your culinary skills. Happy cooking
