pori-urundai-for-karthigai-deepam

Wishing you all happy karthigai deepam!! As a kid,I always enjoyed this festival and had fun in lighting lamps and decorating.Me and my brother,will save some crackers on deepavali and burst it on this day!

           My mom used to do three varieties of pori,one she will just make it as a brittle and two into balls. And here in Singapore since I couldn't find the varieties,I just made balls using our ordinary puffed rice.

Wishes


Pori Urundai For karthigai deepam

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snacks
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Makes: 14

Ingredients



Puffed rice  4 & 1/2 Cups(approx) 
Jaggery  1/2 cup 
Cardamom  1 no. 
Water  as needed 
Ghee  to grease ur hands 


Method:

  1. Powder the jaggery and heat it with water just to immerse it in a broad vessel.
  2. jaggery-syrup
  3. After it completely dissolves,filter it in a cloth or metal strainer to remove impurities.
  4. Add cardamom powder to it, heat the syrup till it reaches a consistency of rolling ball.Keep water in a bowl and test the syrup by pouring a few drops in water.
  5. It should not get dissolved immediately and you should be able to form a ball,but hold its shape,this is uruttu padham. The ball must not be too hard too, you should be able to press it.
  6. Do keep the fire in low, when the consistency is about to reach.
  7. When you reach the specified consistency,remove immediately and add the puffed rice slowly and mix it.Till you don't find any syrup in the bottom of the vessel.And the mixture should not stick in your hands.If its too sticky,then you add more puffed rice to it and mix again.
  8. add
  9. Grease both your hands with ghee, and roll tightly into balls of your desired size.
  10. For half cup of jaggery I could make 14  balls, and the measurement of puffed rice is approximate and please add accordingly.
  11. You can add roasted sesame seeds,fried gram dal(pottukadalai) too.
  12. At the end,while U are making balls, it will harden...so keep again in stove for a fraction of minute to make it loose and roll again...
  13. Store in an air tight container and enjoy!
Note:

  • Be sure that your syrup reaches rolling ball consistency,or else you cant make balls!
  • If your balls are not holding shapes even when you are trying to make shape, then your syrup consistency is not right. You switched off too early.
  • If it holds shape, but later it becomes loose, then also your syrup has not reached the consistency. You switched off just a little before the right consistency.
  • If your syrup is too thick that it got stuck to pan and you are not able to even move the syrup or if your balls are too hard to bite, then you passed the correct consistency of syrup.

Shiny, tasty and beuatiful pori urundais are ready for Karthigai deepam.

  6. Thankyou all for ur lovely words!
    Jeyasri,
    My friend too have told me that we get in little india,but i hardly go that side,for me Mustafa is the only place I shop for our groceries;D
    My mom too adds coconut bits fried in ghee,but to the nel pori brittle only she adds...
    for this we just make it as such...Adding sukku powder is a nice idea,I read in some other blog too....but never tried....
    Have fun in India...:)
