Poli (போளி)

Poli is a very popular festival food and it is called by various names across India. Some names of Poli are Tamil: போளி Poli, Puran poli (Marathi & Konkani: पुरणपोळी or पुरणाची पोळी, Gujarati: પોળી, Kannada: Obbattu/Hollige, Telugu: Bobbattlu... This is a like a stuffed paratha with a sweet stuffing. Ensure that there is no moisture in the kadalai parupu. Also DO NOT pressure cook the kadalai parupu, it may get mushy. Traditionally poli will be pressed on plantain leaf. Now we can use plastic paper if you cannot lay hands on plaintain leaf. It is served hot with ghee. The size of the poli should be similar to a puri and not bigger. This makes 12 polis. This is made on Tamizh Varuzhapirappu (Tamil New Year) which is celebrated today (14.4.2013) this year.
