Puran Poli is a classic Maharashtrian sweet that is massively famous all over this Western state of Maharashtra.

About the Dish

Puran Poli is a Maharashtrian delicacy, which is a sweet Indian flatbread consisting a filling. Also known as Bobbattu in Telugu, it’s a variable dish available in different cultures. Manucharita, a 14th century Telugu script, mentions the recipe of Puran Poli. Our chef uses her family recipe, which makes it authentic and tasty. Using a few ingredients, it’s a lip-smacking and a sweet treat you can’t afford to miss. It’s usually popular during several Maharashtrian festivals but you can also eat it if you are craving something sweet.

How to Eat

The best way to enjoy is to break the puran poli, pour some ghee on it, and enjoy this mouth-watering sweet treat. It tastes best when enjoyed hot and has a very soft filling of puran. It can be enjoyed as a dessert or as a snack with your friends and family. But if you eat it alone, we won't judge you!!
