Aval Pori and Nell Pori are the two famous dishes prepared on the auspicious occasion of Thirukarthigai/Karthigaideepam.
Pori Urundai / Nelpori Urundai
Pori UrundaiIngredients:
Aval Pori4 Cups
Grated Jaggery1 Cup
Finely chopped coconut pieces2 Tablespoon
Cardamom powder1 Teaspoon

  • 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.

  • Vella Pagu
