Patoli is a very healthy sweet, which is made by using turmeric leaves.This is how the plant looks ,the root is turmeric.
Remove the leaves of fresh turmeri, wash them.
All u need is
Wheat flour : 2 cups
Coconut : 1 ( finely grated)
Jaggery : 1/2 the part of coconut (Eg : For 1 cup of grated coconut, its 1/2 cup grated jaggery)
Frist Part would be to make churn ( as called in konkani)
Take a flat bottom pan, Put in a Tsp full of ghee. Add the grated coconut and jaggery mix well, Keep stirring on medium flame for around 10 minutes. It should look something like this, it shouldn't be very sticky.
Next Portion would be to make a sticky dough of water,salt and wheat.
Now, apply a thin layer of the dough on the turmeric leave.Put on the coconut jaggery churn and fold the other part of the leaves.
Repeat the same with other leaves,
