  • For preparing the crunchy snack, first boil jaggery in water and boil it to one string consistency.
  • When you drop the syrup in water see that you can make a round ball. That is the perfect condition to remove from flame.
  • Transfer the syrup to a bowl and add puffed rice or pori and mix it with the help of a ladle before it gets too hard to stir.
  • Now just grease your palms with water and make small ladoos and serve.
