Puri unde/puffed rice/roasted poha laddu is the traditional sweet that we usually see at weddings and some festivals. We grew up eating this puri unde along with chakkali (unde-chakli) – we used to get this as a goodie bag from every marriage my family attended. This was a must-give snack, or else we used to think there was something wrong with the celebrations itself :). My ajji (grandma) and amma used to prepare this during Navarathri and Ganesha chaturthi to distribute to friends and family. I always used to think making these laddus is hard, however I found out that this is the easiest, healthiest snack that we can prepare in no time .
The only thing we have to keep in mind is the consistency of the jaggery syrup – this is very important! We will also never be able to make a unde / laddu if we reduce the amount of jaggery.
