Rava Holige

this is the easiest puran poli ever. because it does not require any expertise in this field. My mom told me this recipe on phone and with her instructions i prepared it and the result was awsome. anybody and everybody can prepare it. yuuuuummmmmmmyyy!!!!!!

For filling:
Rava or semolina(fine or extra-course)- 1 cup
jaggery- ½  cup
cardamom powder- 1/2 tspn
water- 2 cups for fine semolina and 3 cups for extra-course semolina.

For dough:
plain flour- 1/2 cup
wheat flour(wholemeal or chapati flour)-1/2 cup
***Alternatively you can prepare dough with only wheat flour. (That is above ingredients for dough without plain flour.)

Cooking Method:
  • In a mixing bowl, add plain flour,wheat flour, salt.
  • Heat 3-4 tbspn of oil and add to the mixing bowl.Mix it well with water and make into a smooth dough.dont make it too though.let it be very smooth.
  • keep it aside for 1/2 an hour.
  • Put the water in a vessel and bring it to boil. Add jaggery and cook until jaggery melts.
  • Filter the mixture. Keep it to boil again.
  • Add semolina and mix well and cook till it attains the consistency as shown in 1st image.
  • Now grease your hands with oil. Take small amount of dough. Make it flat.
  • Take  double size filling and fill it into the dough so that the dough covers the whole filling. As shown in picture 2.
  • Apply oil and roll it on a flat surface by applying oil.
  • shallow fry on the pan both sides.
Serving Suggestions:
Serve hot with ghee and popadum Or sugar syrup.

Things to consider:
  1. Dont let the dough very though. Make it very smooth. this is because if its very though the filling will not spread evenly.
  2. Dont  roast the semolina or else it will not cook in the jaggery and water mixture. If the semolina smells then just warm it a little.
