Puran poli is a delicacy made in every Maharashtrian household. · The perfect preparation of puran poli is considered a highly-skilled task… an art actually!
I have made a small effort to turn this art into a delectable dessert.

2 cup Milk.
1 cup Puran Sauce
400 gm Whipped Cream.(Ref glossary no 14)

To make puran sauce:

Dont Drain excess water,mash the dal lightly using the back of the spoon.Add grated jaggery and cook well till jaggery is completely dissolved .
Further cook till mixture thickens a little by stiring continuously.
Add the cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, and black pepper powder mix well.
Let it cool completely,
In a mixie,grind it well till it becomes soft and smooth like a sauce.
Keep it aside
Mix together milk and condensed mik in a pan and beat well.Add half of the puran sauce.reserve remaining sauce for garnishing.
