Pori Urundai | Puffed rice balls | Karthigai Deepam Recipe

Pori Urundai, an easy snack made with puffed rice and jaggery syrup. Usually i dont buy pori here as it's available only in 2 lbs bag and also i'm not big fan of it,so it would be remain untouched for months and end up in trash. 

But a few weeks before, ST said that he's craving for masala pori a lot now a days. That's very rare, normally he wont say anything like that, so last week , i had bought a pack and immediately made the masala pori on weekends and enjoyed it with evening tea.
So coming to today's post,as Karthigai deepam is nearing, many people make pori urundai as prasadam on that day. Though we dont make pori urundai on karthigai deepam, for blog sake i tried it today and here i'm with the post
