Sweet Poli

Sweet Poli is a wonderful SouthIndian dessert that is prepared for any marriages in southern part of TamilNadu especially in Nagercoil. Poli goes very well with Paal Payasam. My younger sister Uma is expert in preparing this recipe and i tried this with her recipe. It turns out to be very good.

Thank you mami for the very easy boli recipe. Made it for the first time yesterday using this recipe and it came out very well. Happy Pongal.


Thank you very much Mami I'll also try it.Happy Pongal

Thankyou Subbu! Easy to follow recipie. Only doubt... Won't the poli taste better if the channa is slightly fried without oil...and add vellum instead of sugar?!!

very tasty poli.i feel it will be taste better if u add coconut to yhe poornam

we can add jaggery instead of sugar which is good for health.

all your recipes look very authentic. Would it be the same if you add brown sugar instead of white sugar?

It is really a noble service, very useful information for the young and old.

Prayers and best wishes,

I use wheat flour instead of Maida and comes out softer. I also use Jaggery instead of sugar.

this is a very nice recipe. Will try it for sure. Can someone say what the sugar equivalent of jaggery measure is?

very useful really good information thanks for posting such a good information it will hepls the people a lot keep it up , Regards,
