We celebrate Karthigai in the month of Karthigai in full moon day when the karthigai star comes. Mostly it will be during November end or December first week. I miss my father in law so.. much when i make pori urandai. He likes to have it, even though he should not have sweets. I made Aval pori Urandai , Nel pori Urandai, Kadalai urandai and Appam.

Aval Pori Urndai and Nel pori Urandai


Pori / Rice puffs - 2 cups
Jaggary – 11/2 cup
Cardamon powder – 1 tsp
Finely chopped coconut – ½ cup
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Rice flour – 3 tbsp


1. In a heavy bottom pan add water and jaggery and make thick syrup.
2. If you pour a drop of syrup in water and roll it should roll as ball.
3. Remove from the flame and add elachi powder, ghee.
4. Slowly mix the pori and make balls out of it. Grease your hands with rice flour to make balls without sticking in your hands.

Kadali Urndai/ Peanut balls

Roasted peanuts(plain) – 2 cups
Jaggery – ½ cup
Ghee – 1 tsp


1. In a heavy bottom pan add water and jaggery, make a thick syrup.
2. If you pour a drop of syrup in water we should roll as a ball.
3. Add the peanuts, ghee and stir continuously.
4. When it becomes sticky remove from the flame and make balls.

4. Squeeze the excess oil, by keeping the appam between two spatulas.
