Khavyachi Poli

Being 100th post i thought what better than a sweet dish recipe. After swinging like a pendulam from cakes to biscuits to kheer, i thought i would post this simple recipe.

I hope and wish to keep writing and sharing many such wonderful recipes. Thank you all for the support and love. Always be there.

I had got mava in excess so was wondering what to do with it. Even coconut was excess so when browsing, a thoughtΒ me to make a mixture Β of both and make poli . You can use the same stuffing for fried modak too. They came out very well. We all loved the soft delicious melt in mouth polis.


Here goes the recipe:


For Filling:

Khava: 1 cup

Coconut: 1 cup

Sugar: 3/4th cup

Cardamoms: 1 tsp

For Poli:

Wheat flour: 2 cups

Salt : a pinch

Water:as needed




  1. Using ingredients for poli, make a soft dough. Keep aside.
  2. Β Heat a pan, add the mava, sugar and coconut and cook on a low flame till the water evaporates and it comes together.
  3. Allow it to cool a bit.
  4. Take a pinch of wheat flour dough, roll it small, stuff a spoonful of this mixture.
  5. Close it by pinching the sides and again roll back medium thick.
  6. Heat a tava, transfer the poli and cook by smearing ghee on both sides.
  7. Serve hot with a spoon of ghee aside.


The Poli can be made in advance too. Just warm before serving. Stays good for a day.

The stuffing can be made in advance and refrigerated.Stays good for a week.





Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
