This is a simple to understand step-by-step Recipe for preparing at home sweet, tasty and delicious Strawberry flavored Puran Poli. In this recipe, I have used fresh Strawberries to make the Puran mixture; it can always be replaced by canned Strawberry pulp when Strawberries are not in season.
The Puran Poli is an traditional Maharashtrian sweet Roti/Paratha, which is normally prepared on festive and religious occasions. One in a while you can experiment preparing the Strawberry Puran Poli instead of the usual PuranPolis.
