Gulpoli (Brown sugar paratha)

Gulpoli is a special poli (paratha) made on Makar Sankrant. Jaggery is abundantly available in January and jaggery based dishes are made during this time.

You will need
For the dough
2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
7 tbsp. olive oil

For the filling
1 cup brown sugar (or jaggery)
1/4 cup besan
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. polished sesame seeds
2-3 pods cardamon

Heat the olive oil. Put the flours in a mixing bowl and work the hot oil in. Knead the dough using water. Keep aside for a couple of hours. Knead again and divide into lemon sized balls. 

Dry roast the sesame seeds until they turn pinkish. Let cool and using a blender dry grind to a coarse powder. Shell the cardamom and pound to a powder. Cook the besan well in the oil. Combine in a mixing bowl with all the other ingredients for the filling. Keep aside.

Flatten one ball of dough in the palm of your hands.

Place filling in the flattened dough.

Bring the edges together and and close at the top. 

On a working surface roll out a thin poli taking care to see the filling stays inside. 

Cook on a flat griddle pan. Put a few drops of oil while the poli is cooking. 

Serve hot.
