Thengai Purana Poli is one of my favorite sweet. Whenever, I go to Grand Sweets, I would love to get coconut Poli. I generally make dal poli using sugar or jaggery. This is the first time, I made this coconut poli in my kitchen. Generally, we make poli using Maida (All purpose flour). But, I made this yummy Coconut poli using wheat flour. I have used the same procedure as we do for parathas. Generally for parathas, we make dough out of wheat flour and then we make stuffing and stuff the wheat flour dough balls with stuffing and roll them and cook them to make parathas. The same procedure goes here too. Wheat flour poli tastes yummy like maida flour poli and it is healthy too. So lets see how to make this yummy and healthy Coconut Poli (Thengai Poli) using wheat flour...

Ingredients:
Wheat Flour2 Cups*
Grated Coconut1 Cup
Grated Jaggery1 Cup
Salta pinch
Turmeric Powder1/2 teaspoon
Gingelly Oil2 tablespoon
Ghee 1/4 Cup

* 1 Cup = 250ml
Method:
  1. Take a mixing bowl and add wheat flour along with turmeric powder and salt. Add water little by little and knead it to soft and smooth dough. Also add gingelly oil and knead the dough atleast for 5 minutes. By now, you can feel how soft the dough is. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave it aside for an hour. Be generous in oil and also the more the dough is set aside, softer will be the poli

  2. Now lets prepare our filling. Heat a pan and add grated coconut and jaggery and mix well. Keep the flame low, and stir continuously. The jaggery gets dissolved in heat of the pan and it will get nicely incorporated with grated coconut. Then add cardamom powder and ghee and mix well.  I have used light color jaggery and hence  the color of the puranam is very light. If you have pagu vellam (Dark brown jaggery), then the puranam would be having a nice color. But my puranam is very tasty and yummy.

  3. When the puranam gets nicely thick and rolls like a ball without sticking to the sides of the pan, switch off the flame. If you keep the puranam for a very long time in flame, then the puranam would become like a candy. So once the mixture gets nicely incorporated and if you take a small quantity of puranam with your wet hands, you should be able to roll like a ball. This is the correct consistency to switch off the flame. Now our filling is ready. Take the dough and knead it for couple more minutes. Make lemon sized balls out of the dough. Take one ball and place it on a plastic cover or a banana leaf greased with oil. Using your fingers, spread the dough ball to make a small circle. 

  4. Place a lemon sized ball of puranam in the center of the rolled dough. Close the dough so that the stuffing is nicely stuffed inside the dough. Again, grease your fingers with little oil and spread the stuffed dough ball gently to a thin poli. Repeat this step for the rest of dough and stuffing.

  5. Heat a tawa, and add one rolled poli to the tawa. Apply little ghee and allow the poli to cook on the bottom side in low flame for 30 seconds. Gently flip the poli and cook it on the other side for another 40 seconds. Repeat the same for rest of the rolled polis

  6. Scrumptious Thengai Poli (Coconut Poli) using wheat flour is now ready to serve!!!
