Rice Laddoo

Rice Laddoo or Ari Unda is a favourite of two most favourite people in my life. My brother loves these laddoos. Every time he comes down to Mangalore I make these laddoos for him. Even today I made these for him. When we were kids my grandmother would make these for us. she would then give us both one box each. I was a little naughty back then. Every time I would eat one laddoo I would pick one from my brother’s box and place it in mine. hence his box would get over first. He used to make a sad face and sit. I would then give him a couple of laddoos to him but still, I would make sure I had at least one more than him. I miss my childhood so much. 

Rice Laddoo is very easy to make and requires minimal ingredients. You just need three ingredients, Rice jaggery and grated coconut. You can use either boiled rice or raw rice. I used boiled rice. I have added cardamom powder but its optional. You can skip it. 

While roasting the rice keep the flame on medium-high else the rice won’t puff up nicely. If u roast it on low flame then it won’t puff up. also, the syrup should not be very thick or very thin. It should be half thread consistency else the laddoos will turn hard.
