Sweets Rolls/ Suruttai Poli

>> Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Well this recipe needs no kind of introduction because from past two days this is the most tried one in blogsphere. Yes for ICC (Indian Cooking Challenge). But I'm not preparing it for the challenge and the reason is I've just requested Srivalli to consider me into this challenge. So, as of now I'm not the member of ICC and I cannot post this recipe for the challenge.. :(

Being a curious cat, I was unable to hold myself when I see sweet rolls prepared by many of my blogger friends and they look so pretty.. I love them!! And if you look at Nithya's clicks then... What?? Those clicks are fabulous.. The way she use props to make those simple looking dishes very special, hats off to you Nits!!

So, today I'm posting this recipe as an entry to Bookmarked recipes by Priya & Aipi. And this recipe is bookmarked from Nithya's 4th sense cooking.

Moving on to the recipe...


For Filling

Roasted gram - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Cashews - handful
Cardamom pwd - 1 tsp
Coconut ( scrapped) - 1 tbsp
Clarified Butter (Ghee) - 1 tsp

For Making Poli

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Salt - a pinch
Oil - for deep frying


For Filling

Powder the roasted gram and sugar. Pour it to a bowl.

Take a pan and heat ghee in it. Roast cashew for few minutes until cashew turns golden in color. Remove and keep it on a tissue paper. In the same pan, roast coconut for 2 mins.

Powder the roasted cashew and mix it with powdered gram and sugar. Add roasted coconut to it. Mix well and keep it aside.

For Poli

Take all-purpose flour and salt in a bowl. Knead them into a soft dough by adding water to it little-by-little. Keep it aside for half an hour.

Now divide the dough into small parts and roll them into smooth balls. Using rolling pin, roll the balls into very thin circles ( almost semi-transparent) of around 10cm dia.

Heat oil in a deep-frying pan and put the polis into it. Fry them until half done ( about 10 seconds). Remove them from oil onto a plate and spread the filling over it. Roll them tight and keep it aside to let them cool.

Rolls would be soft when made but gradually would become crispy.

Serve and enjoy with a sip of Masala Chai!!!


1) While deep-frying polis, take care that they should not puff up like pooris. But they can have tiny bubbles here and there. Most of my polis were not perfect. They were in-between pooris and polis. I hope next time I'll get them perfect.

2) You've to work with piping hot polis so take care. Do not hurt yourself.
