Almond - 1/4 cup
Peanuts - 1/4 cup

Fresh coconut - 1/4 cup
Powdered jaggery - 1 & 1/4 cup
( If your jaggery is too sweet then reduce)
Cardamom -10
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Eggplant - 1 big
( Cut the eggplant into half cover and microwave it for 2 minutes or till soft. Cool and grind to a smooth paste along with the skin. You can steam them too)


Dry roast all the nuts, sesame and coconut separately till light brown. Do not  burn them.
Cool them and powder the ingredients along with cardamom to a fine powder.
Take a non stick pan add the eggplant paste, ground powder and powdered jaggery.
In low flame cook the mixture till it leaves the sides of the pan and forms into a mass.
Switch off the stove add the ghee and mix it well.
Cool the mixture and divide the portion into equal size balls.

Ingredients for outer covering

Wheat flour - 1 cup heaped
Maida / All purpose flour - 1 cup heaped
Salt a pinch
Turmeric powder - 2 generous pinches
Oil - 2 tbsp
Water as needed
Ghee as needed to cook the poli


Take a bowl add maida, wheat flour, oil, salt mix to resemble bread crumbs.
Now slowly add water little by little till you form a soft dough.
Cover & rest it for 10 minutes. Divide the dough to equal size balls.
Grease a plastic sheet place the covering ball on top flatten it slightly place a filling ball on top & cover it. Make sure its sealed well.
Apply oil to your fingers and evenly flatten it to a thin disc. You can also use a rolling pin to roll. Make sure the stuffing doesn't come out.
Heat a tawa cook the poli with ghee till slight brown on both sides.
Serve them warm.


a) If you think the jaggery you are using is very sweet then reduce the quantity.
b) As the jaggery was sand free and clean i used it directly otherwise dilute it in water filter and then use.
c) I have used one large eggplant you can make this even with small or medium size brinjals.
d) If you don't have microwave just steam the brinjals.
