Mithi Roti

After much debate, I finally decided to attempt making the Mithi Rotis.Trust me, its no Rocket Science! Yes, it does get better with practice though..These are also known as Puran Polis in some places and Dadi mithi-roti in my home :)  My mother-in-law used to make them every now and then and we would eat them right off the griddle. Nothing compared to that! May Allah SWT bless her and rest her soul in peace and grant her a high place in Jannah, InshaAllah.

1 cup Toor Daal
1 1/4 cup sugar
Elachi powder pinch

Soak the Toor Daal overnight. Now drain the daal and transfer into a nonstick pot and ad two cups of water and boil until soft and mushy.

Now using a hand blender, blend the daal  evenly and return back to the stove. Add the sugar now and on medium flame, cook while stirring frequently.

Keep cooking until all the water evaporates and daal is in a form on a lump. To test if the daal is done, put a wooden spoon in the middle and if it doesn't fall off or move, you are all set.

Now add 1 tbsp of oil and stir again well until it all comes together in the form of a dough and leaves the sides of the pot. Let it cool completely.
