Heat the pan and roast one side of poli and then the other side on a slow flame untill it gets a brownish little colour.
Then take the poli in a plate and pour 2tsbp hot ghee on it and serve hot with milk.

Instead of wheat flour you can use only all purpose flour(maida).
If u want flavour to it u can use pinapple or mango crush while the dal(puran) is been cooked.
