Bengal Gram Dhal Poli for bhogi

I made this sweet dish for Bhogi festival. It is a sweet filled pancake.

Gram Dhal-1 cup
Jaggery-1 cup
Maida-1 cup.
cardamom powder-1teaspoon
Salt a pinch
Turmeric powder:1/4 teaspoon
Ghee-1/2 a cup

Method for filling: Soak gram dhal for 15 mins and pressure cook for 2 or 3 whistles until mushy.Cool and blend into a fine paste.Take jaggery and melt it with 1/4th cup of water and remove scum. To this jaggery liquid,after it thickens to a single thread consistency add gram dhal mixture and stir till the mixture becomes a pliable dough.Add cardamom powder.Cool it and make desired balls.

Method for covering:Knead maida with salt,turmeric,two tablespoons ghee and required water to make a dough.Keep aside for atleast 2 or 3 hrs.You do this to get soft polis.

To make the Poli: Take a little maida dough and place it on a plantain leaf smeared with ghee. Flatten the puri to accommodate stuffing.Now place the bengal gram dhal ball on top of the puri.Cover the poli and turn it over to make a puri.Place this on a tawa,with the leaf flat down and wait till the poli sticks to the pan.Cook this poli with ghee on the edges.Cook both the sides and remove from fire.
This is my submission for Pritis Markar Sankranti Festival
