My mom and granny used to prepare these pori urundai and few other sweets during Independence day as years passed with many diabetics at home this tradition stopped this independence i wanted to start it all over again and prepared some sweets topping my list Pori Urundai .

4 Cups Pori/Puffed Rice
1/2 Cup Jaggarey
1/4 Cup Water
Orange and Green Colours
- Its always recommended to clean the puff rice before use.
- Heat a heavy bottom pot I've used a wok on medium flame.
- Add jaggery and water bring to a boil allow the jaggery to melt using a strainer strain the melted jaggery.
- Add the strained jaggery back on medium flame bring to boil place water in a bowl add few drops of jaggery to the water if your able to form pearl consistency then add puffed rice and mix well till the melted jaggery has distributed evenly.
- Oil hands start forming ladoo shape as soon as possiable if the mixture cools down it will be difficult to form and shape.
- Allow to air dry a bit till heat has gone store it in air tight container.
- To add color follow the same steps melt the jaggery add it back on flame then add color and repeat the process of forming ladoo.
- Since I was giving away these ladoo to kids at a local school near by I prepared a large batch of these.
- To make them look more attractive I printed out Indian Flag with Gandhi quotes using post it notes and bamboo skewers i secured the flag on skewers.
- Once the flag skewers were done I pierced the ladoo on the skewers gifted them to kids the moment i gave them these tricolor ladoo they were so happy and thanked me.
