These remind me of my school days where we used to get these kallepuri ball near our school for a mere 50 paise in those old days…i hardly find these now in the store much. After seeing the ingredients for the this months 1st Magic Mingle , i was thinking about preparing either a hot cocoa or a cake by adding these two ingredients…but days passed by and i completely forgot of this. Speaking to one one of my friends i remembered these again and thought of preparing this.
These are very easy to prepare and require very less ingredients as well, and a great munchies for the kids.
Caramelized puffed Rice
Puffed Rice 1 1/2 cups
Grated Jaggery 1/4cup + 2tbsp
Grated Cinnamon 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder 1/4 tsp
Water 2 tbsp
1/4 tsp oil to grease
Dry roast puffed rice till crisp.Keep aside.
Grease the back of a plate and keep ready.
Mix water and jaggery and cook nicely till the jaggery melts and thickens.
It has to read a soft ball consistency, to test this add a drop of the syrup to cold water and if it forms a ball and doesn’t spread ll over the water it is ready.
It takes up to 5 mins to reach this.
Add the Cinnamon and Chilli and mix.
Add the puffed rice and mix nicely and you have to be quick doing this.
Transfer the mixture to the back of the plate and spread evenly all over.
After 2 mins cut into desired shape and start munching!!!
You can prepare balls out of this as well, for this no need of spreading it on a plate, after u mix the puffed rice to the jaggery, grease your hands and start making balls.
