Gulpoli – sweet flat bread

Gulpoli is a sweet flat bread that can be eaten as an indulgent snack or as dessert. The chapati is made with a combination of whole wheat and plain flour with the addition of some gram flour. While the filling inside is made from jaggery, roasted sesame seeds and roasted gram flour with a little nutmeg and cardamom.

Making these requires a little practice as you need to ensure the chapati does not break and expose the filling while it is being rolled out. If that does happen, the filling will stick to the pan when cooking the chapati. After cooking the jaggery will harden as it cools down, making the chapati a bit crispy/crunchy.

The jaggery and gram flour filling makes these very tasty, but also a bit heavy. So gulpoli is best enjoyed in small installments if you are strong enough to control your temptation!
