Khara Poli, Channadal Poli
Am running this week's blogging marathon with kid's delight - Winter warmers as theme. Winter, this season is one of my favourite though the day light will be lesser than the other seasons. Winter makes me happy as its a festive season to have loads of fun and laughter with family and friends. And not to forget that Winter season calls for some delightful dishes especially for deep-frying and warm foods.After two Winter warmers, am finishing this week's theme with this dangerously delicious Khara poli which is filled with savoury channadal filling.My kids enjoyed them warm and loved it to the core.
Sending this to Srivalli's Kid's Delight event, guest hosted by PJ themed on Winter Warmers.

Take the wheat flour,salt in a large bowl, add the warm water slowly and knead everything as a soft dough.

Add warm oil to the kneaded dough and keep aside for half an hour.

Make 6-7 medium sized balls from the wheat dough.

Channadal Khara Poli

Once the filling is ready, divide the dough as 6-7 balls. Turn them as medium sized discs with your hands.

Put enough filling inside and bring the edges to together to form a stuffed dough ball.

Now grease your hands and flatten them as thinner as possible.

Meanwhile heat a tawa, grease it with oil, drop the poli and cook on both side until they gets cooked.
