Each Khava Poli carries 223 kcal.

Ingredients :
  1. Khoya 1 cup, (I have used Homemade Khoya)
  2. Almond meal 2 tbsp
  3. Cardamom powder 1 tsp
  4. Powdered sugar ½ cup
  5. Wheat Flour 1 ½ cup
  6. Salt 1 tsp
  7. Veg.oil 1 tsp
  8. Ghee 1 tbsp

Recipe :
To Make Dough :
  1. In a mixing bowl add wheat, salt and veg.oil 1 tsp and by adding water knead a normal dough as in roti / paratha and keep aside.
To Make Stuffing of Khoya :
  1. In another bowl add grated khoya(I have used homemade fresh khoya), dry fruits meal and powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix all very well and divide it into equal portions.
To Make Khoya Poli :
  1. Divide dough into equal portions and take one dough ball, roll out one portion of the dough into a 4 to 5 diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling or you can roll dough by using fingers as shown in video.
  2. Place a portion of the Khoya or Mawa stuffing in the center and fold the edges of the dough over the filling. Pinch the edges together to seal the filling.
  3. Flatten the dough and roll again to make Khoya poli using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  4. Cook on a tava over a
    medium flame, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides by smearing ghee or oil.
  5. Repeat with the remaining dough and make more khava polis. Smear a little ghee on each khoya poli and serve hot.
  6. Here, delightful, flavorsome and sweet Khoya or Mawa  Poli is ready to serve. Serve hot with milk, ghee. Enjoy!!!
Tips :
  • Instead of almond meal, you can also use dry roasted gram flour to prepare khoya stuffing.
  • Instead of wheat flour, you can use all purpose flour / maida or half wheat flour and half all purpose flour can be used to prepare the poli.
  • While rolling the Poli, be careful, if you are making first time you can use rice flour to roll Poli.
  • If dough formed is hard then keep it covered for an hour or two.
  • If you have leftover Khoya peda or burfi you can prepare instant Khoya Poli.
