The Maharashtrian hospitality is legendary. The cuisine has subtle variety and strong flavours and varies from region to region. In ancient times in the more affluent homes, feasts often started at mid-day and ended when the sun set! The presentation of food was alluring with a practice to sing sacred verses to dedicate the meal to God.
Maharashtrian cuisine covers a wide range from being extremely mild to very spicy dishes. Wheat, rice, jowar, vegetables, lentils and fruit form important components of Maharashtrian diet. 
Everybody knows about the unbeatable taste of the Mumbai’s chaats! But there is so much more to explore and savour in the other regions of Maharashtra.

Ingredients for Chutneychi Poli Recipe

  • Whole Wheat Flour 2 cups

  • Fresh Coriander chopped roughly chopped 1 medium

  • Coconut 1/4 cup

  • Peanuts 1/4 cup

  • Green chilli 5-6

  • Lemon juice 1 tablespoon

  • Sugar 1 teaspoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Ghee 1/2 cup

Method

Step 1

Sieve flour with half a teaspoon of salt. Add sufficient water and knead to make smooth dough. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for fifteen minutes.

Step 2

Combine coriander leaves, coconut, peanuts, green chillies, lemon juice, sugar, salt and grind to a thick smooth chutney without using water.

Step 3

Divide dough into eight equal portions and make pedas. Take a peda and flatten it by pressing. Place a spoonful of chutney in the centre, gather and seal the edges completely so that the chutney does not come out.

Step 4

Flatten these pedas, sprinkle a little flour and roll them with a rolling pin to make thin rotis (polis) of approximately six-inch diameter. Heat a tawa, place the poli on it and cook on moderate heat for a minute.

Step 5

Turn, apply a teaspoon of ghee on the poli and cook on low heat for half a minute turn it again, pour a teaspoon of ghee on the other side and continue to cook for a minute. Similarly prepare the remaining polis and serve hot.
