Puran Poli is somewhat similar to Obattu from Karnataka
No matter what hour of the day it is, people who have an intense case of sweet tooth are up for desserts anytime. India especially has no dearth of desserts (or dessert lovers). Some simple, some unique, there is always something to write home about these desserts. Speaking of unique sweet treats, Maharashtra's puran poli is one of the first Indian desserts to cross our minds. In a world of halwa and barfi, Puran Poli has managed to carve its own identity as a sweet bread stuffed with delectably sweet dal filling. The melt-in-mouth filling made with oodles of ghee and sugar can very well be a dessert of its own, but there is nothing quite like finding it within layers of maida flatbreads. The rich interplay of textures and flavours here is simply irresistible.
