Recipe Link:


Peanuts are usually called as poor men's cashews or almonds. It is a very easy sweet / snack made with just two main ingredients.Though I have eaten it so many times, from my childhood days this is the first time I am trying my hands on this kadalai urundai recipe. If rolled into balls it's kadalai urundai. But if poured in a tray and cut into squares, it is called kadalai mittai. In Tamilnadu, Kovilpatti is very famous for kadalai mittai. It is said 2 or 3 varieties of jaggery is used along with sugar, liquid glucose and vanilla essence with colorful dried coconut shreds on top. As karthigai deepam is nearing, I thought of sharing this recipe.


This Pori urundai recipe / karthigai pori urundai is such a simple and quick snack that can be made with few ingredients easily available in our kitchen shelves. It tastes so good, crispy and also called as murmura ladoo, often prepared during karthigai deepam. The recipe is same as we do for kadalai urundai with slight variations. Karthigai deepam is one of the oldest festival celebrated by Tamil people and called as an extension of Deepavali. This festival is celebrated during full moon day, when the moon is in line with six star constellation Karthigai. As karthigai deepam is round the corner (12th December - Monday) all of us would be busy and I know that I should end my stories. Let's go the recipe.
