For making puran
Soak gram dal in 2 cups of water in a glass bowl for 1 to 2 hours. Cover bowl with microwave lid (let release the excess steam).
Microwave first on high power for 5 minutes and then on medium power for 10 to 12 minutes. Stand for 5 minutes and then remove from microwave. Cool.
Add gud or sugar and make fine paste in mixer. Take the paste in the same bowl.
Microwave on high power for 4 minutes, stir and again microwave on high power for 2 to 3 minutes. As the mixture starts becoming dry and bubbles appear on surface of the mixture, stop microwave.
Cool the mixture. Add cardamum and nutmeg powders and keep covered.
For making dough
Add water to flour mixture and make a smooth and slightly loose dough. Keep covered for 30 minutes.
Add salt and oil and kneed it well.
Making Puranpoli
Make 5 or 6 equal portions of puran and dough each. Take one portion of dough and make it flat on the palm, stuff one portion of puran in it and cover with dough from all sides.
Make poli with gentle and light rolling. Roast poli on gas stove on hot griddle. Use medium heat and roast on both sides on light golden colour. Serve hot with Saajuk tup (Asli Ghee).
Special tips:
For a large quantity, it is convenient to cook dal in pressure cooker on gas stove and after making paste with gud/sugar, cook in microwave.
Making puranpoli is a very delicate task. Be very patient and gentle while making it.
