This is the easiest recipe and my kids favourite. It requires minimum ingredients to make.
Pori/Puffed rice - 5 cups
Elachi/cardamom powder - a pinch
Jaggery/ achu vellam - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Heat jaggery with water till it is completely dissolved. Filter jaggery water from impurities.
Take a heavy bottomed pan, heat jaggery water, elachi powder and ghee till you get one-string consistency thick syrup.
One string consistency is when you one drop of jaggery syrup in water, it forms a ball.
Now the syrup is ready, add pori immediately and mix it nicely with the syrup. The pori should be coated nicely with the jaggery.
Apply some ghee on your hand, start preparing small tight balls while the pori is warm. 
I made about 15 pori urundais.
