Moong dal poli recipe, Paruppu poli

Moong dal poli/ Pesara pappu poli/ Paruppu poli is a sweetened flat bread with lentil filling usually prepared during festivals like Ugadi, Holi or for any other festivities. Yes you are correct!! Ugadi is almost there and I thought to try and post a new recipe without breaking much of the protocols (u know what I mean, innovation with traditionπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) so tried making poli/ bobbatlu/ boli with moong dal instead of chana dal and was super happy with the result as it tasted same like the regular ones PURAN POLI.

Talking about the regular poli last year do you guys remember a new version that I tried?? Forgot??  Here it is BADAM POLI, which is again a super yum poli worth trying. I have already posted some traditional poli recipes like this:

So same procedures just a change in dal makes all the difference, you could adjust the quantity of jaggery and coconut according to your liking and I hope you guys will like it. So let’s get to the making of pesara pappu poli/ paruppu poli!!
