Sakkaravalli Kizhangu(Sweet Potato) Poli-Navarathri Recipes(Day 2)

Second day of Navarathri –Sakkaravalli kizhangu(Sweet potato) Poli


Puranpoli is very common in all the parts of India. Then I thought of making the puran poli with sweet potatoes. Poli is traditional sweet flat bread made in India in the states of Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa and Andhra Pradesh. Sakkaravalli kizhangu poli is something new to me.But for a long time wanted to give a try. I love the channa dal puran poli which none can say “NO” to it. It is damn simple to make it and yet yummy. 

I love sweets... One more delicious sweet from Gujarat.
