It’s a sweet flat bread today with the stuffing of sesame seeds plus jaggery which is probably better known as til poli or ellu holige in local languages of India. The nutty sesame seeds happen to appear all around the food these days just because SANKRANTI is too close by. I am not an exception and this post pretty much justifies that.
Til poli’s simple goodness is like no other that I stress enough because I have posted quite a few puran poli recipes in this space and I know how elaborate, time-consuming process this is. In all those recipes, lots of cooking, grinding and sauteing goes on just to get the stuffing ready. But absence of all those results in this yummy factor til poli.
The sesame stuffing in this flat bread has roasted white sesame seeds, jaggery plus desiccated coconut with the hint of cardamom. All of them are minced well in a mixer / blender and that’s it the stuffing is ready. You can go ahead and add a tea spoon of milk too if you feel it is too thick and hard like laddu.
Til poli is delicious on the palate and easy on the wallet (because not too expensive like lentils!!). Sesame seeds flatbread provides adequate nourishment for the body and soul, and needless to say it satisfies the sweet desire for a meal with a zing.
