Green Peas Almond Pistachio Poli.Sounds sweet na.Yeah!I prepared this today with some leftover peas in my pantry after used for Kachori.This is my first experience with poli as I dont know how to make it.My mom told to do the stuffing like this and again flat like stuffed parathas.
Poli is a yummy sweet made in South India.Basically the stuffing is made with the mixture of Bengal Gram,Jaggery,Cardamom powder and dessicated coconut.
I got an idea from that and made this yummy poli:)Having a wonderful greeny poli this evening,i really enjoyed this:)
Using almond,pistachios and sugar you can make this poli yummy and delicious one.I used green peas,almonds and pistachios paste and heat with 2 tbsp of ghee with 3 tbsp of sugar.You got the stuffing now.For the dough,same maida,salt and 1 tbsp unflavored oil.
