Puran Poli:- 

Puran poli is a Maharashtrian stuffed sweet bread. Specially prepared on festive occasions.I have prepared this on the occasion of Holi. The preparation of stuffing required for the puran poli is really a hard work but my mom suggested me to cook the stuffing  in Microwave. It made the job so easy. Hats of to my Mom ,she flows so easily with the new generation and technologies..LOVE you My dear Mommy. This is my way of making chapatis little bit different from what my mom makes.I tried to explain all the details.The stuffing can be stored for one week in the referigerater. If you have any questions please leave a comment. I will respond as soon as possible.So here is the recipe.
