Grate the jaggery, powder the cardamom and keep it aside.

Add jaggery/vellam to a pan, add 4 tbsp of water.

Heat the jaggery pan until it melts with constant stirring. Switch off the stove.

Filter the melted jaggery through a sieve or tea strainer to remove impurities. Keep a small bowl of water to check the consistency of jaggery.

Now add the filtered jaggery to a kadai/pan and heat it. Keep stirring the mixture. The jaggery will start to froth and thicken.

Add cardamom powder, sukku powder and mix well. Keep checking for the string consistency.

 To check the consistency add few drops of water to a bowl of water, the jaggery will not dissolve in water.

You will be able to form a ball with this jaggery, at this stage switch off the stove.

Now remove from stove, add the pori/puffed rice to the jaggery and mix it well with a ladle.

Grease your hands with a drop of ghee and make balls when it is still warm.

Yes, delicious, healthy and traditional Pori Urundai is ready to neivadhyam.

Store the pori urundai in air tight container and enjoy.
