Wash and soak the chana dal for 1-2 hours. Drain the water and cook the soaked dal in 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles on high heat.
Transfer the cooked dal in a pan, add jaggery and cook on low heat until jaggery is dissolved. Now add cardamom powder and nutmeg powder and cook until the mixture thickens.
Prepare the dough by mixing maida, turmeric powder, salt, water and a tablespoon of ghee. Wrap it in a damp cloth and keep aside for 30 minutes.
Roll small rounds with the dough, place the filling in the center, gather the edges, and roll out the dough.
Heat a flat pan and roast the puran poli until golden brown spots appear. Flip and cook the other side until brown spots appear. Apply ghee on both the sides.
Serve the puran poli hot with a dollop of ghee.
