  1. Wonderful share and a very delicious recipe indeed. This is a favorite at our home as well. I have had this with chana dal am sure moong bean will be equally delicious .Love your pictures and detailed explanation as always . Happy New year to you Megala!

  2. Using moong bean for puran poli is interesting. I have always used thoordal. These puran poli look very delicious. Happy 2021!!

    1. I tried with moong bean as it has more health benefits compared to Bengal gram or red gram, and I am glad you also liked it.
      Thanks so much.

  3. I love what you said at the first paragraph! Indeed, we have had the most unique experiences during the past year…
    This is exactly my favorite “pancake-like” dish! Can’t wait to follow your recipe and make some for my family.
    Wow. double-sized of the dough is such a wisdom! Thank you, Megala!

      1. You are very welcome, Megala!
        Same here. Thank you for your kindness and constant support. Blogging is an amazing world. It connects our souls.
        Happy New Year!

  4. This looks great! I had puran poli for the first time when I was in Maharashtra with my son in 2018 and loved them. When I got back to Toronto I found a place that served them as well and I was so glad to have found it. Of course now with the pandemic it has been closed.

    Maybe someday I will try making them – for now I still struggle making even a simple chapati that comes out right. Practice makes perfect, though!

    1. Yes, we do find it difficult to make poli in the beginning. But I have seen some perfectly cooked Indian dishes in your blog, and I hope you could master this recipe also very soon. πŸ™‚
      Thanks so much for stopping by.

  5. I love puran poli πŸ™‚ Here we make a slightly different version and it is called holige. One is with chana dal jaggery filling and the other coconut jaggery filling. But I have never made them at home πŸ™‚ Usually in weddings and other functions, holige is favoured. Thank you for the recipe:)

    1. Earlier I used to feel that it is one of the difficut recipes that I could ever try my hand, but still I tried this only after blogging in here. Now I feel like it is not so difficult as I thought. πŸ™‚
      Hope you had a wonderful New Year celebration with your family. Thanks so much for reading & commenting.

  6. Hi Megala, I have been having problems after changing hosts, again. I never learn. So it seems I was not following you! Wp trolls at work. Puran poli is one of my fav dishes. I am so glad to be back on your blog. Hope the first day of the year started on a good note. Love and hugs. DDG aka Arundhati.πŸ₯°

  7. Wishing you & your family a very Happy New Year…It is really great idea to make savoury Puran poli.Thanks for the wonderful recipe and tips for making perfect Puran Poli.

    1. It is my pleasure. πŸ™‚ You are too kind. I still remember the beautiful parathas you have made, I wish I could become such a dexterous paratha maker like you.

      1. Awwww…I remember you being the first few supporters right from the beginning on my blog Megala. Means a lot to me😊❀ We all learn something or other from each other a lot here…will continue doing so !
