I just love Puran Polis. They also go by the names Holige (in Kannada), Bobbatlu(in Telugu), Poli and Obbattu(in Tamil). Usually, during Ganesha Chathurthi, my whole day consists of eating only these sweet delicacies.
For festivals like Ganesha Chaturthi and Ugadi, these ‘Bobbatlus’ (in Telugu) are very much part of the menu. In Karnataka, Holige, as they are called, is a main item in a list of special dishes perpared during the festival.
This video is by Sudha shows you how to make Puran Poli (with Dhal). So enjoy and also include this as part of your other festival and special occassions. If you live in Bangalore, don’t forget to call me when you make them
