As I always make Suzhiyan for Diwali,the pooranam(stuffing) I always  make a bit more than needed and keep refrigerated. After few days I make poli which is my hubby’s favorite. I am not an expert in rolling poli,but I have improved than before now!  Thanks to Jugalbandhi,which have a good pictorial  to learn the technique and have drool worthy and professional pictures as well :)



(Makes 5-6 medium poli)

Maida / All purpose flour 1 cup
Pooranam(Stuffing) As needed
Oil/Ghee 4-5 tblsp
Luke warm milk As needed
Salt As needed

Refer this post Suzhiyan for the preperation of the pooranam/stuffing.


  1. Mix oil and salt in the flour and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add luke warm milk and make into a smooth dough just like our chapati dough and keep covered for 1 hr to  3 hrs.
  3. Make equal sized ball of dough and the pooran too.
  4. Roll the dough ball to a thick circle and place the pooran ball in the middle and cover it as shown in the picture.
