Carrot PoLi (Gajar PoLi)

Wish you all a very happy Makar Sankranti.

I wanted to post something sweet today. When I searched through my pictures, I saw these pictures. I had tried this a while ago. Aruna sent me this recipe few months ago. When I tried it, we both enjoyed it a lot. Being a Gajar Halwa and puran poli fan, this was a very delicious change. Do give it a try.

Like any poli, the outer layer can be made with maida or all purpose flour. But according to Aruna’s suggestions, I used wheat flour. Since maida/all purpose flour helps in rolling the polis thin, I mixed both wheat flour and all purpose flour. The polis turned out great. (I need to take some better pictures when I make it next time).

3/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour or maida
1 tea spn oil and Ghee
1 and 1/2 cups thick carrot halwa (do not add any nuts)

Make a dough with both flours, salt and oil. Knead it very well. Keep aside for about 30mins.
Make small balls out of halwa. Roll the dough into small circle, keep the halwa ball in the center and cover the dough over filling. Roll into poli.

Heat tava and roast poli on both sides. If desired, apply ghee. Serve hot.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins

  1. wow loved your version of using gajar halwa, cos whenever I prepare this there is always huge amount of leftover ! So next time I prepare halwa this is sure a TO DO !!

  2. Great idea. Should try it out. If any left over gajar halwa is there ( which is a remote possibility!) I do like eating anything sweet with roti or puri and this is a better alternative.
