Authentic Gujarati Thali

"A sweet stuffing made of toor daal that is pan-cooked and eaten with a generous portion of ghee. This dish has many other names throughout India including Puran Poli, but I grew up calling it Vermi. A full Gujarati Thali Meal! Stay tuned for updated recipes every day this Diwali season. A full course Gujarati Thali meal compiled of traditional Surat, Gujarat recipes such as Vermi/Puran Poli, vegetable side dishes such as stuffed eggplant (aubergine), and Pulao Rice using Royal Basmati Rice. Whether you are celebrating Diwali with friends, your birthday, or any auspicious day, this is a go-to Surati Thali meal that can please the vegetarian Gujarati food lover in your life."

NotesThese can be made ahead of time and heated through on a stovetop pan right before serving.;
The stuffing can be placed in the freezer for a few months at a time. I roll them into portioned balls and place them in a freezer-safe bag.;
Fresh ghee takes this dish to another level!
