Thengai Boli Recipe

Thengai poli is our family’s favorite sweet. We got this recipe from one of our childhood neighbours. She used to make perfect and tasty polis. My mom learnt from her and whenever I go home for holidays, poli will always be there in the menu atleast once. She also used to make it when we have guests at home. Even all the guests started liking the poli which my mom makes. I used to help my mom in making poli at times, that is how I learnt this recipe. After almost a year’s time, I made poli last evening and quickly clicked some pictures.
