- Pori (flat one) - 2 cups
- Powdered jaggery - 1 cup
- Chukku (Dried ginger) - ½ tsp
- Cardamom powder - ¾ tsp
- Coconut slices - ½ cup
Clean the pori well devoid of dust and other particles.
Powder the jaggery and melt it in ¾ cups of water and filter out the dust particles.
Cut the coconut into equal sized ½ inch pieces.
In a big kadai, make a thick syrup from jaggery.
If you pour a tsp of the syrup in a bowl of water, it should form a ball shape when you roll it with your fingers.
This is the right consistency.
At this point, add cardamom powder, chukku powder and sliced coconuts.
Immediately add the pori and mix well.
Switch off the gas and keep mixing.
When the mixture is still warm start making balls like laddus or as per the required size.
Karthigai Pori is ready. If you are unable to make balls you can leave it loose only.
