We can get 20 Sweet Balls within 10 mints.!



Easy-to-find ingredients make this homemade sweet. These puffed rice balls are very nutritious + fat free + easy dish + less time taking +limited ingredients + kids friendly snack.
Years ago it was a popular kids treat in India. Now it comes here with honey(western touch) instead of jaggery. Its a wonderful snack for kids occasions. But there is one important factor in this balls making. That is the consistency of honey syrup. If syrup is not cook enough (until the thread consistency) the mixture will not be hold like a ball. If its too cook, syrup will be burnt.

Time: 10minutes
Ingredients for twenty Balls:

Puffed rice 2 Cups
Honey 1/4 Cup
Cardamoms 4 (powdered)

To prepare the delicious puffed rice balls we can follow the given recipe.


Heat a kadai on stove add honey and water (1/4 cup) mix together. Simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the honey turns to thread consistency. Add cardamom powder and remove from heat. Stir the puffed rice into the honey mixture until everything is thoroughly coated. Roll this mixture into balls with greased hands ,when cool enough to handle. Or spread on a greased sheet/plate and let it cool a few minutes and cut into bars.
