Just for the knowledge, "Puran poli" is Marathi version in which chanadal is used while "Vedhmi" is Gujarati version in which Tuardal is used. Also the Marathi version is known as "Obattu" in Kannada. NOw a days people mostly use tuardal since it makes softer version. Traditionally eaten with lots of ghee but I know some of my friends enjoy it with kadhi (Gujarati) as well, leftover tests really good with mango or lemon pickels....now I need to go eat some!

Mine is in the draft :-) Lovely photos of puran poli dear
