Kadalai urundai is a candy made with peanuts and jaggery. It is one of the sweets on the healthy list, thanks to the iron content of jaggery and proteins found in peanut. Kovilpatti, in South Tamil Nadu, is popular for making this sweet. Kadalai urundai is a part of Karthigai deepam prasadams.
The jaggery consistency is sharply observed before the peanuts are dropped in it, lest it should become a mess. The peanuts are roasted well before reaching the jaggery syrup. A passionate homemaker or chef sets hands on the piping hot mix, to take portions and roll them into balls, after which they are left to cool and set.
Kadalai urundai was and is enjoyed as a snack by school students, due to its nutrition values. Mahatma Gandhi called peanuts as poor man’s almonds as peanuts compete with nutrition of almonds. In fact peanuts have a winning edge over almonds.
Kadalai urundai can also be taken after a meal. Interestingly though, when malls were not there, rural theatres found fans getting inside the screen halls with kadalai urundai to munch as they saw their favourite movies. Also known as Verkadalai mittai it is popular among all ages, kids, youths or seniors.
Besides being rolled into balls, it is also laid in flat square shapes or bars and sliced while hot. Buy Kadalai Urundai online at Opportunity Infinity site.
