Undan Pori


Undan Pori
Today's post is a delicious snack usually common in small restaurants and tea stalls of Kerala.It resembles very much to the unni appam yet it is different in its taste and texture. Undan pori  is crispy and crunchy and at the same time soft and spongy inside.
This snack was regularly seen in our college canteen. But this humble snack was brought it only if there was a shortage of uzhunnu vada and parippu vada. It sounds funny but being away from Kerala I felt a craving for this snack and tried it once, but I did not get the perfect chayakada/teastall taste. When I saw this recipe in Swathi's blog -Zesty South Indian Kitchen-I knew this was the perfect recipe. I tried it and it was really delicious. Thanks Swathi for the recipe.

Ingredients
Wheat flour- 1 1/3 cup
Rice flour- 1/3 cup (optional)
Baking soda-a pinch
Jaggery- 3/4 cup
Small banana mashed-3

Cardamon  powder-1/3 tsp
Ghee- 1 tbs
Coconut pieces- 1/3 cup
salt- a pinch
oil for frying



Powder jaggery and add 1/2 cup of water. Bring this mixture to a boil. When jaggery melts strain out the impurities and allow to cool.
Heat ghee in a pan and roast finely chopped coconut pieces till it is golden brown
Mash the bananas ( best for this recipe is Palayakodan which is widely used in Kerala)  and mix with jaggery syrup. In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together and add the  banana mixture, and fried coconut make a smooth dough. You can add extra water and make it like soft chapatti dough. It will be a slightly sticky dough. Grease your hands and make small lemon sized ball. Heat oil and fry this till both sides are brown and crispy. Fry in medium low flames for about four to five minutes. Drain in paper towels and serve with tea.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy.
