Carrot-Boli

#CarrotBoli [ #CarrotPoli ] :  #Boli or #Poli is usually a sweet stuffed pancake. Generally the sweet stuffing is made of bengal gram or coconut with jaggery. The sweet stuffing is called pooranam in Tamil. For a change I recently prepared boli with Carrot Halwa.  
After preparing Carrot Halwa knead Dough for Boli or whole wheat dough for boli following the method given in the link. The dough should be made 4 to 5 hours before start making boli.
Keep ready a clean cellophane [ plastic ] sheet or plantain leaf to spread the boli.
Now over to the method of preparing carrot boli
