Pal Poli

Recipe and Photo Courtesy: Priya (my friend)

This proportion makes 12 small polis.

Ingredients

All Purpose Flour -1 cup
Rava -1/4 cup
Ghee-1 tsp+ 1/4 tsp
Salt- a pinch
Water- to make firm dough

Evaporated milk (fat free)- 11/4 cup
Water-1/2 cup
Condensed milk (non fat)-1/2 cup
MTR badam feast- 21/2 tsp
Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
Saffron strands- a few
Oil for frying (around 11/2 cups)

Cooking Directions

-Make firm dough with all purpose flour (maida), rava, ghee, salt and water. Knead well. Coat the surface with half a tsp of oil to prevent from getting dry. Cover with a damp wash cloth and set aside for half an hour.
-Soak saffron strands in a little milk.
-Meanwhile, in a thick bottomed vessel, add evaporated milk, water, condensed milk, cardamom powder and badam mix. Gradually bring to a boil on a low medium flame. When it is about to boil over, reduce the heat to low and continue to boil for 6-7 min stirring continually. Turn off the heat. Add the soaked saffron strands. Keep the milk mixture aside. (If you have a sweet tooth, add sugar to taste)
-Heat oil in a kadai until its smoking hot.
-Uncover the dough. Give it a final knead. Divide into 12 equal portions and make little roundels. (Smear a quarter tsp of ghee in your palms to help get smooth roundels)
-Dust the rolling surface with a little flour. Roll out each roundel into about a 3 inch diameter circle with a rolling pin. Carefully drop into the hot oil and fry until both sides are golden brown.
-Dab excess oil with a paper towel and drop polis into the milk mixture. Let them soak for about half an hour
-Garnish with nuts or dry fruits if desired.
-Serve warm or chilled. Yummy!
