  5. Wow! Nice make-do-deepams. And super pori urundais! Kalakreenga. And yeah, even I use candles here instead of agalvilakku when I pray every day. And forget about Idhayam Nallennai, we dont get any nallenai here in Ireland 😦

  7. Hi yaadayaada

    My first time here. Can you please share the recipe for this urundai. Where do you get pori? Looks like you are also in tbe bay area. I am a regular at your sister’s blogs.

    You have a wonderful blog site. Keep the good work going


    YY: Welcome Anu! I bought rice pori(arisi pori, the one we use for bhel puri) from indian grocery shop. I do see, aval pori and the nellu pori from time to time in India Cash and Carry, Sunnyvale. I put the pori in microwave or over for a minute or two to crisp them up. Caramalize sugar, add the pori and make it into urundai. To caramalize sugar, put one cup of sugar, 1 table spoon oil, cardamom powder and 1/4 cup of water and boil until kambi padham.
