    We prepare some sweets with jaggery . Some people could not take jaggery sweets, like ground nut chickes, Pori oorundai etc. because as soon as they take, they will get some ulcer in their tongue. So here I am giving some Liquid Caramel sweets which are easy to prepare and tastes grate.

    How to prepare Liquid Caramel:

    1 cup sugar.

    Just put sugar in a kadai ,under low heat. Stir continuously.
    When it becomes liquid that is liquid caramel.
    Prepare various sweets with that and enjoy.
    Here I am going to give some of them.

    Poori oorundai.



    Generally we prepare this Poorai oorundai for Karthigai Deepam with jaggery. Here is the recipe to prepare that with liquid caramel.

    1 cup Sugar
    2 -3 cup Poori (rice poori /aval poori)
    Cardamom powder as per taste.


    Method:
    In a deep pan put sugar and stir continuously.
    It will become liquid and at that time put the cleaned poori, and stir well.
    Add cardamom powder and mix well.
    Remove from the fire and make them like ladoos.
    Enjoy.
    It will not take more than 10 min. to finish the job. (Jaggery means full day work. Is it not?)

    Chicky varieties.

    You can make chickies out of this liquid caramel.

    Take cashew nuts/ ground nuts/ Hazel nuts/ Puttu kadalai/ Almond/ Sesame seeds/ or any other seeds or nuts that you need.

    Prepare liquid caramel and put the nuts in that.
    Just switch off the stove and mix well.
    Spread the mixture on a plate or the ‘kadapa slab’ on your kitchen table.
    Spread it like chappati.
    With in 2 min. it will set.
    Cut it and use.

    This is very very easy and children will like this very much.

    No water

    Hi,

    I just asked you to put sugar in a pan. Not water. when you add water , then only it is called as sakkarai thanni, and then you have to wait it to become thick.

    Just heat sugar by putting it in the pan. Stir cont. slowly it will start melting, that liquid is called 'liquid caramal'. (If you leave as it is it will become crisp and we can use that for ice creams, by crushing them.)

    Now clear?

    Hi Teja,

    Hello Jeja,

    I am fine , How are you? Saw your mail. Generally ‘Poorai’ means ‘Puffed Rice’. I think you know this.
    In the ingredients I mentioned was, ‘Nell Pori’ and ‘Aval Pori’ which we will use in Tamil Nadu at the time of Karthigai Deepam’ to make sweet balls out of them.

    Nell Pori = When you dry fry Paddy, (seeds of rice) it will pop and dry fried rice will come out of that. We will remove the skin of paddy and use that ‘<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>pori</st1:place></st1:City>’ for this purpose.

    Aval poti = When you dry fry Aval/ poha / rice flakes, it will pop up. That is called ‘aval <st1:City><st1:place>pori</st1:place></st1:City>.


    I think I explained well. :)

    Dear Krishnamma,

    I am gud as well. Actually I still don't get the pori thing. But u mentioned " puffed rice " so I searched with that name. Now I think I already knew this pori . It's just the language problemfor me . In Andhra we call it with the name " murmaralu " or " mooories". As I think they r white in color n usually make it like a mixture with onions, lemon,chilli powder n salt etc etc . R n't they? If not let me know I will try to find them again....

    I have no idea that I can get en in Indian stores here in Canada, because I never luk 4 them before. But I will try , I may get them this time.

    Thanks Krishnamma 4 ur detailed explanation about it....
    Teja:wink:
