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.
