Murmura Ladoo |Puffed Rice Balls

Murmura ladoo recipe,I made these murmura ladoos for Makar Sankranti which is just few days away.The puffed rice or murmura ladoo are very easy to make and need just two ingredients only.I learned this recipe from my mother but had never tried making them at home.

Murmura ladoo can stay for longer and tastes great.Just make sure to bind the ladoo quickly or else the jaggery will start hardening.If that happens sprinkle some water and put it in the microwave fro 30 seconds on high.
