Gur aur Til ki Roti | Jaggery and Sesame Flatbread

Gur Aur Til ki Roti

Gur aur Til Ki Roti is a sweet flatbread very similar to Puran Poli that’s made across many Indian States. This flatbread is made during Sankranthi with the harvest fresh Til and new jaggery.

I had this planned for festival dishes during Sankranthi, then changed it when I realised I had to an A to Z International Flatbreads. Since I was twisting the subthemes with a single category, I had to bring in my own twists. So I picked up 6 different Indian Flatbreads that are sweet for the Indian Sweets category.

This Gur aur Til ki Roti is popular in states like Andhra, Karnataka and Maharashtra. I chose to make the Maharashtrian name. The filling is very simple with just jaggery and sesame mixed in. I used my regular dough that I use for Poli. It turned out so good and delicious.

G was quite a nut to crack as the other g as in Gulachi Poli I have already done. So Gur aur til Ki Roti was my choice in A to Z International Flatbreads. If you want to know what my G in Street Food is, please check as it was one of the most delicious dishes I have made!
