Poha n Roasted gram Balls / Aval Potukadalai Urundai

My pantry is filled with lots of poha, beaten rice, roasted gram and jaggery now because of saraswathy pooja... First thought of trying My hubby's fav sweet with beaten rice " Pori Urundai " , then swapped my mind after entering into my kitchen ( happens most of the time ;) ) and tried those sweet balls with roasted gram and poha.... Whenever I try something new for my hubby, I used to get excited and tensed...its not about getting scared...its the compliment or reactions:)
I used to serve him and stare at his face for his reactions or sometimes used to serve him and sit n watch tv as if I am cool ( actually not...he he ).
But yesterday after coming from office he noticed these balls in a table and tasted it... Immediately he completed 3 balls in a jiffy...Glad and very happy that he loved it very much....
Planning to try his fav " Pori urundai " soon....

Ingredients :
  • 1 Cup Jaggery, grated
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 Cup Poha / Aval
  • 3/4 Cup Roasted gram / Potukadalai

Method :
  • Boil water and add the grated jaggery.
  • Boil it for 5 minutes in a medium flame or till the consistency of jaggery starts thickening.
  • Meanwhile grease the plate with butter or oil.
  • Now add the poha and roasted gram, mix well so that the jaggery gets coated well with them.
  • Let it cook for 3 minutes in a medium flame.
  • Remove and spread it in the plate.
  • Let it cool for 4 - 5 minutes and make balls by greasing oil in hands.
  • It should be warm while shaping them.
  • Cool them completely and store in a airtight container.
