In my childhood my mom used to make Porivilangai urundai. We don’t like it at that time. Now I asked my mom to make Porivilangai urundai. She is a good cook and she is also my mentor.
- Dry roast and grind:
- Boiled rice (Idli rice) – 1 cup
- Green gram dal – ½ cup
- For urundai:
- Ground flour – 3 cups
- Jaggery – 250 grams
- Coconut – 3 tsp
- Fried gram – 3 tsp
- Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp
- Ghee – 2 tblsp

Dry roast rice and dal seperately till nice aroma comes. Mix together and grind it in the rice mill. Take 3 cups of flour. Cut coconut in to tiny bits. Heat ghee in a pan and fry coconut and fried gram. Melt jaggery in water and strain it. Add jaggery syrup, cardamom powder and flour and mix well and knead into a smooth dough.
