Karthigai Pori - a classic prasadam prepared for karthigai festival. This karthigai pori looks different from the regular rice pori and you can get these pori during karthigai tamil month in pori shops.


They are one my favourite, favourite...... prasadam dishes. This tastes so good on the next day because the jaggery will enter each poris after cooling down. For this karthigai pori dish you will need the nel pori, jaggery, black sesame seeds and coconut. To prepare jaggery syrup, I recommend to use pagu vellam (jaggery) which is dark brown in colour because it gives a nice taste and colour to this dish. You have to dissolve the jaggery with little water and then strain it if needed. Then continue boiling the syrup on low heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches to a thick consistency. Watch your jaggery syrup closely as it gets thicker or browns quickly. Before preparing the jaggery syrup, add the nelpori in a big container or in a vessel. Add the roasted sesame seed…
