    Hi Kaviarun,

    Today I am going to prepare this poli. But I have a doubt . I have brought jaggery( Triangular shaped vellam) . So how do i cook the channa dal with vellam. Do i have to break it into pieces before mix it with channa dal in a pan or do i have to pour water and cook jaggery first and then add channa dal or do i have to cook the grinded channa dal with the jaggery (without breaking it) will it automaticaly dissolve/

    Please clarify my doubt soon.

      Hi visitor, i know i'm replying late, sorry somehow missed ur msg. Ya,if u have hammer break the vellam into powder. MIx ground channa dal powder and jaggery powder in kadai & heat in medium….pls. don't add water….jaggery melts in heat…we need thick poornam not watery….so that we have to add little coconut…

      Dear shanthi, so today poli in ur home…..am i correct?….try it…do with patience….u can get nice poli….for half cup channa dal use only one cup water…it's very important….otherwise the poornam will turn soggy…. for ur feedback….thanks.
