Palkova Poli

After diwali celebration, my house is filled with lots of sweets and savories and it is monotonous to eat and pack the same kind of sweets for my husband, so I tried a simple poli with a twist of adding leftover palkova sweet and served it for a evening snack. It tasted very delicious and was juicy after cooking due to the melted kova. Adding saffron is optional and I have added for the flavor and color. It can served hot or cold but personally we loved it hot with the melted juicy kova in every bite.
