  3. Consistency check : Keep a seperate plate ready filled with little water.Take a drop of jaggery syrup and put it in water, it should stand firm and not dissolve as shown below. It should form a hard ball when you roll it with your fingers

  5. I used my measuring spoon to scoop out even sized balls.Scoop and then roll using your palms.Cool down and store in airtight container.How to make Pottukadalai Urundai Recipe - Step4
Serve as a snack.

My Notes:

  • Once the desired consistency is reached switch off and then add dal, this is to avoid the consistency to pass to next stage.
  • Be careful in checking the consistency else making them into balls will be tough.
  • If it hardens in the end for the last few balls then heat up the mixture for a minute, jaggery will melt ten you can make balls.
