Puri Urandai:

I couldn’t believe myself that I could make a sweet that fast. Thanks to the Blogging Marathon team and to the host who started this, that’s none other than Srivalli of spicingyourlife.
Today being the last day of second week of Blogging Marathon, I am glad to say that I have learnt very good sweets which can be made with less or more time. Thanks for my family and friends who had been very supportive.

Thanks for all the exciting comments which made me jump high on the air.

Puri Urandai is made up of beaten rice and jaggery. I was shocked to see this sweet getting ready just in 10 minutes and I cooked keep my lovely little angel my little son on my hip and then do this, but needed help of somebody while making it rounds. This is a must sweet made by Tamilians during “Karthika Deepam”.

  • Beaten Rice – 1 1/2 cup
  • Jaggery – 1 cup
  • Cardamom Powder – 1 tbsp
  • Poppy Seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Chopped Coconut – as you desire
  • Fried Gram Dhal – as you desire

  • Put jaggery and water in a thick bottomed vessel to make jaggery syrup.
  • When you feel the syrup is almost ready put a drop into a small cup/vessel which has water, you should be able to make a round or small dough.
  • Once you are able to make, add cardamom powder and poppy seeds.
  • Pour it into the vessel where your beaten rice is ready along with fried gram dhal and chopped coconut. Watch out it would be hot, make your hand wet and start mixing dry ingredients with jaggery syrup.
  • Keep it on a plate, take a snap, and eat it with family members.
