SAVORY POLI

Photobucket

Spicy poli is an Indian flat bread stuffed with savory filling  Normally it uses vegetable such as mushroom, potato, bean  or  carrot.  It is famous in a state of Gujarat and Maharashtra. They are best serve during breakfast as well  as a  mid afternoon snack.

When preparing the dough, it must has a right consistency that is very soft and pliable so shaping is so much easier using your hand.

SAVORY  POLI

DOUGH
1 C all purpose flour
2 TB oil
pinch of turmeric
salt
water
oil for frying

FILLING
1 C  mashed potato
salt to taste

GRIND
5 green chili chopped
5 cloves garlic
3 TB grated coconut

METHOD

DOUGH
Mix all the ingredient in a bowl, gradually add water to form a soft dough. Dough must be very soft and not tight otherwise you can't shape them using your hand. Keep for 2 hours.

FILLING
Combine together mashed potato, salt and ground ingredients. Shape into balls.

TO ASSEMBLE
Divide dough and filling  into 4-6  balls. Flatten the ball on a greased plate, place the filling, gather the dough to the center. Flatten them using your oiled hand on greased plate. Repeat to the rest of the dough.
Heat a teaspoon of oil on flat pan, fry the poli until black spot appears on top, flip and cook the other side, drizzle some oil while you fry. Fry the rest of the dough. Serve hot.
