Kadalai urundai is made with peanut and jaggery as main ingredient. Jaggery is made syrup and made candy with peanut. Very healthy snack, rich in protein and goodness of jaggery which is rich in iron. This has been a long time due for me to post this, some how kept postponing to try this. I guess many readers search for kadalai urundai in Rakskitchen. We don’t make this often, so it took some time for me to try. For holidays, I used to go to my grandma’s house, have lots of friends over there. My grandma (my own grandma’s sister) always make this kadala urundai for snack when ever we go there. She will make with ease and pack for us too. It will be so crisp, shiny and tasty.

Never thought about the recipe as we were kids. Never thought I will make it at home too. Always buy kadala mittai with sprinkled colour dry coconut. It gives a lovely flavour to the kadalai mittai. After marriage, very rarely I eat kadalai mittai. But mom always insists to eat as its good for health. So when every I remember, I buy kadalai mittai and eat. These days, kovilpatti kadalai mittai is getting famous. I have to yet to taste it to tell me how good it is. But as of now, this is really easy to do at home. I am slightly lazy just for blowing the skin away. Otherwise everything is easy for me.
We usually do not make kadalai urundai for karthigai deepam. But I know many make, so I thought this is the best time for me to try and post. Happy Karthigai deepam (25th, Wednesday).
Store in airtight containers and enjoy! Healthy snack for the family!
