Puran poli ani kaatachi aamti

Puran poli is wonderful, when served with kaatachi aamti , guloli and ghee. The combinations workout awesome.
Well we shall see how to make puran poli , kaatachi aamti

My Ingredients :
Channa dal      500 gms (Split Bengal Gram )
Jaggery            400 gms
Cardmom powder  2 tsp.

Boil channa dal in enough water (around 4- 5 cups of water). Dal should not be very soft but soft enough to grind. Drain out  water from dal. Save this water for kaata.
Grind together the cardmom powder, boiled dal and jaggery. ( **Do not add water). The mixture is Puran.
Divide jaggery dal mixture into pingpong  size ball.

For Dough/ Kanik

Maida          250 gms. (All purpose flour)
Salt              1/4 Tsp.
Water           1/2 cup.
Refined Oil    1/4 cup.

Mix maida, salt, water into dough. Dough should be very sticky not as hard as roti dough. Put oil and knead it well. The oil should float on the dough.
Divide this dough mixture (Kanik) into slightly smaller balls. Roll them out a  little.
Place the  dal ball in the center of the rolled flour dough and close it to cover the filling completely.
Roll out into a chapati and bake on a non stick tawa till done on both sides.
