Pori urundai recipe

Last year i posted Pori urundai recipe with poha/aval for karthigai deepam. This year i wanted to make  pori urundai using puffed rice. As i don’t get nel pori here , i used arisi pori.Procedure for making pori urundai is similar. It may be  aval , nel or arisi.So i wanted to share this recipe in my space with step by step pictures and a video.Hope it will be useful for beginners. As my mil usually says , the ratio of pori and jaggery is 8:1. I follow the same every year and it comes out very well.Over to recipe with a picture and my latest video recipe !

1 cup = 200ml
For jaggery syrup
  • Paagu vellam/Jaggery - 1/2 cup (grated,heaped)

For balls
  • Puffed rice/Arisi pori -  4 cups ( Use 3.5 cups for sweet urundai)

METHOD

  • Dry roast sesame seeds in a kadai till it crackles.

  • In a wide kadai , take the grated jaggery. Add water to it. Make sure jaggery should be immersed completely. I used 1/4 cup of water for 1/2 cup of jaggery.Measure the puffed rice and keep it ready.Keep ready a small plate with water.Melt the jaggery completely and strain it to remove impurities.

  • Boil the syrup till it becomes frothy and thick. Take the syrup in the ladle and drop it . The syrup will drop slowly  and the last drop will make a string . At this time , simmer the flame and pour little syrup in a plate of water.Try to gather all the syrup and remove it.It will be non-sticky and u’ll be able to make a ball. This is the right stage.Switch off the flame.Suppose if u miss this stage, add little water to the syrup and boil again. Check the consistency and proceed.

  • Mix the puffed rice well in the syrup till the bottom of kadai.All the rice should be coated well with the syrup. Grease ur hands with rice flour or ghee and make balls tightly when the mixture is slightly warm.If the mixture cools down,u can't shape it.So do it fast.U’ll be able to make a perfect round. If u r a beginner , make balls roughly first .Complete making balls before the mixture cools down. Then shape it well. I usually follow this for aval pori.

  • If the mixture cools down before making balls, heat the kadai slightly. The syrup will melt and helps u to make balls . Make round balls. Give a setting time of 10 minutes and enjoy !U can store these balls and use it for 2 weeks. If the mixture cools down,u can't shape it.So do it fast.
  • HERE IS THE FULL RECIPE VIDEO FOR UR REFERENCE. Please check my latest video recipe in the beginning of the post.

Note

  • Jaggery consistency is very important here. Please have a look after the jaggery syrup becomes froth. It takes hardly 2-3 minutes in high flame to reach the consistency.
  • Make balls when the mixture is with bearable heat.When it cools down , u can’t make it. So u have to reheat again for few seconds.
  • Adding coconut bits , sesame seeds and fried gram dal are optional.I have seen my neighbours making pori urundai without all these. But we add sesame seeds for sure as we keep it for neivedyam.

Wish u all a very happy karthigai deepam. Enjoy the festival of lights Smile
