Hope everyone had wonderful weekend. I am enjoying my new place with wonderful weather so still not in a force with kitchen works as I had so many things to shop, arranging things between works with my sons school. So still I am posting Diwali recipes all these days. Hope you too will enjoy these ......

This is sweet dish which we call as " Suruttai poli " Means rolled poori kind of thing stuffed with roasted gram dhal sweet mixture. Which is absolutely crispy and tasty. This is one of our favourite snack. So easy to make but rolling part has to be done very fast otherwise it breaks. so here is the recipe.....

Ingredients for poli (outer wrap) :

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Oil for frying

Method :

1. Mix all the above and make like poori dough.
2. Leave it for 15 minutes.
3. Make small balls and roll everything to thin circles using the rolling pin and keep it aside.
4. Now keep oil in the vessel for deep frying.

For Filling :

Roasted gram dhal - 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar - 1/2  cup
Cashew nuts - small bits 2 tbsp
Ghee for frying cashews

Method :

1. Powder the dhal and mix with the powder sugar.
2. Fry the cashew nuts in ghee and add the powdered mixture.
3. Mix well so that everything is blended well. Keep it aside.

Here is how the Packing is done :

Now for this outer wrap you need 1/2 cup powdered sugar for dusting. Spread this in a plate.

1. Now deep fry the rolled dough in oil not too crisp and not too soft.
2. Dust it with sugar , Keep 2 tbsp of powdered mixture in the edge roll and keep in the tray.
3. Repeat the same with other rolled circles one by one.
4. Don't delay in rolling once it is dusted with sugar immediately stuff and roll.
5. Delaying tends to break.

Note :

1. Roll all the dough and keep aside this is to avoid puffing while deep frying. Making like this is because the circles will be slightly dried so there wont be moisture will frying.
2. While deep frying put the rolled thins one at a time pour the oil over the top dont turn and take out immediately. It should not be too soft and crisp.

This can be stored for 10 days at least. But sure you will finish with 3 to 4 days. Store in air tight container.
