Aval Pori and Nell Pori are the two famous dishes prepared on the auspicious occasion of Thirukarthigai or Karthigaideepam.
Ingredients to make Pori Urundai:
Aval Pori 4 Cups
Grated Jaggery 1/2 Cup
Finely chopped coconut pieces 2 Tablespoon
Cardamom powder 1 Teaspoon
Pori Urundai Prepration Method:
# Add jaggery in a pan with 1/2 cup of water and when it dissolves it water take it and strain the jaggery water to avoid sand.
# Again boil the jaggery water along with coconut and keep stirring it until the jaggery comes to stone consistency. This means when we take a drop of jaggery juice and pour it in water, it should not dissolve rather we should be able to make a ball out of it.
# Now remove the jaggery from flame and add the Aval pori/Nell Pori and mix it well along with cardamom powder. Now the Aval/Nell Pori mixture is ready.
# Remove this pori mixture and place it in a paper. Make small balls of Aval/Nell pori.
# The delicious Aval/Nell Pori orundai is ready for neivedhyam.
