Celebrating MY 100TH POST- Recipe updated with video

Paal poli /Milk poli is an authentic Tamil brahmin recipe made in  our place during poojas . I wanted to give it a try for a long time, and finally i have decided to make this to celebrate my 100th post.
My mom makes this so yummy and i learnt this from her and i used to help my mom whenever she makes this.Many times i wonder  how she makes so effortlessly for a lot of people. When i tried on my own, it came out well without disappointing me. Here goes the recipe for the Paal Poli. Check out my kadala paruppu poli and thengai poli too.
