Sweet potato and mott dal poli
Polis are my all time favourite and even though they take some time to prepare, it is time well spent. Rather than the usual chana dal sweet poli I decided to make it with sweet potato and for protein I added mott dal (you can use whole moong or regular chana dal also). Making the polis with wheat flour makes this a healthier poli. So try it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Soak the dal for 6-7 hours and in a pressure cooker cook the dal and sweet potato with very little water. Once cooked, peel the sweet potato and mash it with the dal.
Mix the atta with water, turmeric and salt and knead till you get a soft chapati like dough. Add the oil and knead some more till it is smooth and allow it to rest for an hour. When you are ready to make the poli, roll sufficient filling into small balls (I got 12 from the quantities used) and set aside.
