Ari Unda (Rice Balls)

Ari mean rice and unda means balls in malayalam. This is one of my favorites and it is a popular snack of Kerala.


  1. Chemba(brown) Rice – 1 cup
  2. Jaggery  – 1/2 cup
  3. Grated Coconut – 1 cup


  1. Dry roast chemba rice(or you can use normal white rice) till it becomes crispy.Roast it to a fine powder. Keep aside.
  2. Grind grated coconut and grated jaggery  coarsely.
  3. Mix well and make balls of medium size  using hand.
  4. Store in a airtight container.

I am sending this to event called ‘Walk Through Memory Lane’, hosted by smitha and Gayathri’s Cook Spot.
