Hi ... just tried the recipe with a little modification. If you want real krishna sweet recipe - dont add onions , second add dosa milagai podi( idly chily powder ) on one side of the polis along with finally chopped coriander leaves. To the potato mix , add 1/4 tsp of garam masala. It tastes exactly the same as krishna sweets masala poli.

Ingredients needed : 

For outer covering : 

  • Maida - 2 cup
  • Turmeric powder - little
  • Salt 
  • Oil - little
  • Water 
For stuffing :
  • Potatoes - 3 or 4 
  • Salt - little
  • Coriander leaves - little
  • Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp.
  • Idli milagai podi - little
  • Cashews (optional)


For outer covering : 
                   Take a bowl add maida+ salt + turmeric powder + oil and mix it well then add water little by little and mix it well till you get soft dough and cover it and set aside . 

For stuffing: 
                   Peel potato skin and cut it into three or four pieces and boil it well till done, once done allow it to cool completely and mash it well to this add salt + garam masala powder + idli milagai podi + finely chopped coriander leaves + cashews if using and mix it well . 

                 Now take small ball size maida dough and make a cup shape of the dough and take little stuffing place it in middle and then bring all the edges together and seal it well... take a small plantain leaf and place the stuffed dough dip your fingers in little oil and flatten the dough gently,  ...heat a tawa and cook poli by adding little oil or ghee and cook on both sides till done .  Kara poli is ready to serve ...tastes best when served hot .
