Pori urundai recipe, Karthigai pori urundai – Jaggery balls made using pori murumura. Recipe of Karthigai pori urundai in Tamil with full video and step by step instructions.

Pori urundai is a traditional sweet we make for Karthigai deepam. We usually make pori urundai using Nel pori or Aval pori. I have posted Nel pori urundai recipe with full video in jeyashris kitchen. For people living abroad, we don’t get access to nel pori or aval pori. We do rarely get in some places. Even in Singapore we get Nel pori for making Karthigai pori.

This pori urundai is made using the Bhel puri pori. That is widely available in almost all Indian stores. Pori urundai is a very easy recipe.

Why my Pori urundais are not able to form balls?

The jaggery syrup should be in hard ball consistency, if it is not cooked it comes to a hard ball consistency, then you can’t form balls.

How to check hard ball consistency of jaggery syrup

When the jaggery syrup is boiling, take a few drops and put into a small bowl of water. You should gather that into a whole mass and make a ball. When you put that ball in a steel plate you should get a ‘tung ‘ sound.

How to trouble shoot or fix Pori Urundais

Unfortunately, you can’t fix it. If the jaggery syrup is not in the right consistency and you poured it on the pori, then you can’t fix it.

  3. Thanks for posting. Keep up the good work. I always refer your recipes; it inspires people to try out. However, I have a question. I made this urundai it came out well but when we eat, the jaggery sticks in the tooth a bit. Do you have any idea what would have gone wrong?

    Thanks in advance. Priya

  4. I came across you site accidentally and now I’m hooked to it! Your Karthigai Pori recipe came at the apt time and I tried it out on 17/11.It was a super hit among my family & my non-Tamil colleagues.Continue your good work of spreading the knowledge of our traditional recipes.

  5. the reasons for the pori not forming balls is the paagu are:
    1.The paagu may not be in the right hard ball consistency
    2.the pori must be more than the paagu
    3.Pori must be very less and jaggery syrup is more.
