Pori Urundai for Karthigai Deepam

Pori Urundai is a traditional south Indian sweet made with puffed rice/Murmurra and jaggery for Karthigai Deepam. Kids love crunching on them for evening snack. They are very light and crunchy

Ingredients : 

Pori / Murmurra / Puffed rice - 4 cups
Jaggary - 1 cup (3/4 cup works fine as well)
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Dry ginger powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee - 1 teaspoon

Procedure : 

1. Boil jaggary with 1/2 cup of water until melted

2. Once jaggary is melted strain the mixture to a large pan and start boiling

3. Jaggary syrup must boil to become hard ball consistency. Check this by dropping some jaggary syrup in cold water and you must be able to form a ball and when the ball is dropped on a stainless steel plate, you should hear a dang sound.

4. Now turn off the stove and add cardamon powder, lemon juice and dry ginger powder and mix well

5. Now add Pori and mix well and make sure all the pori/puffed rice are coated with jaggary syrup

6. Make small laddus out the mixture when its still warm.

Note: use food grade gloves while making laddus easily

Belgian Waffle with Strawberry Syrup

 Belgian Waffles are light and crispy waffle when compared to regular ones. These waffles are made lighter by adding yeast. Added yeast ferments the batter overnight and makes the waffles crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. 

My strawberry sauce recipe is very versatile one. This can be used on literally anything and everything. I make the same recipe replacing any of the berry or sometimes mixed berry.

Ingredients : 

Ap Flour - 2 1/2 cup 
Sugar - 1/4 cup 
Salt - 1tsp

Baking soda - 1/2 tsp

Strawberry Syrup : 

Fresh or frozen strawberries - 1 cup 
Sugar - 1/2 cup 
Water - 2 cup 
Corn starch - 1 tsp

1. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
2. Melt the butter completely ( do not boil) .
3. Now add melted butter and milk and mix all together
4. Cover and ferment overnight or 5 hrs or more( the batter must double in size ).
5. Now add eggs and baking soda and mix well until all combined well.
6. Heat the waffles iron and pour the batter and cook till golden brown.

1. Cook strawberries water and sugar until strawberries are soft.
2. Cool and strain the mixture, squeeze the strawberries to get the pulp out completely.
3. Bring the strained mixture to boil and add cornflour mixed in water and cook well.
4. Once the mixture thickens and becomes syrupy turn off and cool the syrup before serving
