Sweet Beginnings

on January 14, 2013

Poli

This is the time of the year when we celebrate the Harvest festival in India. It is also the beginning of a New Year. Celebrations include bonfires the day before the festival to symbolize the age-old New Year tradition of “out with the old and in with the new”. And of course something sweet to eat. “Poli” is a flatbread filled with a mix of lentils and jaggery seasoned with sweet spices like cardamom and nutmeg. A real treat for kids and the kid in all of us! These disappeared as fast as I could make them yesterday. The last one was forcibly photographed before being devoured!

  • Great as a sweet lunchbox treat.
  • Recipe upon request.
