Milk Polis, Palu Bobatlu. Pal Ommittu. Paal Poori. Pal puri.
Maybe our stone age fore-fathers have been deprived for this one thing ‘S-U-G-A-R’. And that is why our in-built genes still crave for anything ‘S-W-E-E-T’.:) Obviously starchier meals, fatty stuff and anything sweeter easily becomes comfort dish for some of us. The rush of dopamine, in brain(during a starchy meal) makes us feel happy. The chemical phenylethylamine tend to overpower our brains when we eat chocolates/sweets. Which is believed to be responsible for the excitement/ecstasy feeling. Often, few of us are quite addicted to these brain-chemicals and that is why comforting and coddling with food becomes so necessary. So, here is my treat.:)
All Purpose flour 1 cup
Sugar syrup 1/2 cup
Milk 4 cups – reduced into half
Cashew nuts powder few spoons
Almonds/pistachios/cashew nuts to garnish
Saffron few strands
Oil for deep frying.
Make a smooth dough using just the flour, no salt, no soda for sure. Just plain flour with milk or warm water would be fine.
Then divide this dough into equal parts, roll them into thin polis.
Shallow fry them both the sides, till fluffy.
Dip these polis in the sugar syrup for a while and remove.
In a wide pan, heat milk. Add cashew nuts powder, saffron and all the nuts to it. Boil and really reduce to half of its original content.
Now immerse these polis in this milk…once, the milk is all sucked up, its done.
Now refridgerate them for about 2-4 hours and serve chilled, maybe add fresh cream before serving, enjoy with company of friends and family.:)
