Puran Poli is a classical Maharashtrian dish.  Look wise, this traditional sweet is similar to roti, but the preparation is entirely different.  Puran Poli is  made during the festival such as Gudi Padwa (Maharashtrian New Year),  Holi, Gouri-Ganpati festival in Maharashtra.

The stuffing is known as Puran and outer cover is known as Poli.
The Puran is made by Sweet mixture of Chickpea lentils and Jaggery. The outer cover is made of wheat flour.
