DATES AND SESAME SWEET PARATHA/ KHARJURA HOLIGE/ KHAJUR KI POORANPOLI

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, SWEETS / UNDE/LADDU / BURFI / HOLIGE/POORAN POLI / HALWA on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

One of the yummy sweet dish containing Iron……! Iron is an important nutrient for our body and for our health. Iron carries oxygen around the body. If Iron stores are low then our body is prone to more frequent infections. So getting the right amount of iron and other nutrients from food is very important. Now coming to this Holige/Pooranpoli… Its a sweet dish without using any direct sweetener like… sugar or jaggery, If used also, we use jaggery and that too a small piece. This is the best thing what I like about this dish. It also has got the goodness of almonds, sesame seeds, dry coconut and poppy seeds. This can be prepared as a sweet for functions or can be made for breakfast just like paratha. I like the combo of temple chitranna & this Pooranpoli.  I’m planning to make dates paratha using chiroti rava (fine quality rava) also, shall post the pic here once I try it out.

The below quantity of ingredients yielded 4 holige or paratha, I have divided both the dough and the filling into 4 equal parts, as we are only 4 people at home….. It’s just like… 1 holige or paratha for each person

         Ingredients :

         For the dough :

  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Salt – a fat pinch

      PROCEDURE :

  • Make a soft dough using the flour, milk and little water (if required) and knead well (I didn’t use water) divide into equal portions
  • Toast the sesame seeds, almond, dry coconut and poppy seeds over a medium flame till they are light brown and allow it to cool.
  • Grind everything (add in dates & jaggery too) into a fine powder and add in little milk at a time to form a dough and divide into equal portions

         

 

  • Take a portion of the dough and stuff one portion of the filling and cover it properly

  

  • Roll out into a circle, dusting with flour (I use wheat or rice flour)

  • Cook on a heated Pan until both sides are brown

   

  • Repeat with the remaining dough and serve hot with little ghee
