Puran Poli, an Indian Sweet For Diwali

Puran poli is a popular festive sweet across India. In
Bangalore, Puran poli is known as "Obbattu" in the
local language, Kannada.

I always made puran poli with toor dal. When I saw
the puran poli made with chana dal in Indira's blog,
I wanted to try it.

Today, I made puran poli following Indira's recipe.
This recipe is very easy to veganize. I used
vegetable oil instead of ghee(clarified butter).

I usually eat puran poli with a dollop of Earth
Balance Soy Garden Natural Buttery Spread or with hot
soy milk.

I'm submitting this to Jihva, Navratri-Dassera/Diwali
