Shikran Poli - A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets
We are on S on our Journey through the cuisines, where I am taking a tour on A to Z Maharashtrian Sweets. Today's dish is a simple combination, that seems to be the childhood favorite dish of many Maharashtrians. Yet this is something you will not find listed in the restaurants or well known to others. I guess every cuisine has some dishes that are only known and common in households rather than being cooked or served in the hotels.
Though I had another choice of making Sanjachi Poli / Sanjuri Poli / Sanjori Poli / Sheerachi Poli as it is known by different names, it is a poli made with sooji halwa. The halwa is the same, just you will end up stuffing the poli with the sooji halwa. This particular sweet is quite popular in other states as well. Anyway, I wasn't prepared to make a sooji halwa on the day I was making these dishes.
