Take a medium or large size ball from the dough. Roll it 2 to 3 inches in circumference and place a portion of puran mixture in the center.

Bring the edges together towards the center.

Join all the edges and pinch them in the center.

Sprinkle some flour and start rolling the dough.

Make a medium or large disc. It should be rolled a bit thin, not thick.

Spread some ghee on a heated tawa or griddle.

Place the rolled disc (puran poli) on the tawa.

When one side is browned, flip and cook till the other side is browned too.

Once the second side is browned, flip and apply ghee. If everything is done properly, then the puran poli will puff up.
