pori urundai

Yields: Around 15 Pori Urundai

Puffed rice  - 2 cups (Pori)
Jaggery        - 1/4 cup (Vellam)
Water           - 2 tbsp


  • Take Jaggery in a sauce pan. Add 2 tbsp of water to it. Allow it boil. When all the jaggery dissolves, filter it. This is done to remove impurities.

  • Add jaggery extract to the pan. boil it in medium flame till it reaches hard round ball consistency. To check the consistency, add few drops of jaggery extract to a bowl of water. If you can form a hard ball out of the extract, it clearly says that jaggery extract has reached needed consistency. 

  • Now switch off the flame and then add pori to it. Mix everything well.

  • Grease your hands if needed and start making balls out of the pori, when its still hot. You will not be able to make balls after it cools off. Enjoy your Pori Urundai!!
