Puri Unde is a good old traditional recipe that has been passed on from generations. Puri in kannada means Murmura or Puffed rice , Unde means round – which is nothing but ladoo. Poori Undae is a Murmura Ladoo , which I often do during festivals and pooja’s. Puri Undae / Murmura ladoo is generally prepared during Tulsi Puja / Karthika Deepam for offerings to Lord . Even Banana Rasayana and Instant Gojju Avalakki are prepared for prasad during festivals in Karnataka.

I was gearing up for Janmashtami festive celebrations, so thought of preparing this crunchy ,crispy and delicious Puri Undae. Murmura Ladoo is very easy to make and it takes very less time to prepare. It makes use of very few ingredients ,which are easily available at home ,Murmura, jaggery ,peanuts,dry coconut and roasted gram.

Making of jaggery syrup is the most important thing here.Hence, you should get the right consistency of jaggery syrup,it should not be hard or it should not be thin. How to test the jaggery syrup consistency ? If you drop jaggery syrup inside cold water then jaggery syrup should form a soft and firm ball,it is the right consistency. Prepare the ladoos when the syrup is still hot or else you will not be able to bind ladoo together.
