Paruppu Purana Poli
Paruppu Purana Poli (Puran Poli) is a traditional sweet dish prepared during festivals like Bogi and Avani Avittam. Apart from festivals, I used to make this yummy sweet dish often because my first Grand daughter likes it so much. It is always a pleasure to make for our kids especially when they like it so much. Many of us think doing Poli is a very tough task, but believe me if we enjoy and do it, then I bet, it is very simple and very scrumptious too. A very soft and delicious sweet dish. In my mom-in-law’s native, for events like marriages they serve the purana poli and add generous amount of ghee as topping and also serve payasam on top of it.
