In the mean time it gets cooled little bit. Grease your hands with ghee to avoid sticking and make small or medium sized balls as per your wish.
To make the balls in easy way, just take a portion of prepared puffed rice in a small tiffin plate and rotate the plate in circular motion, it will make the pori to stick together and becomes a whole mass. Then make it into perfect round balls by pressing with the hand.(Refer Video)
Store in a airtight box to retain its crispiness.

NOTES:
Actually the retension of crispiness is in the making of jaggery syrup. You should be able to make nice ball out of the jaggery syrup.
If  you add the puffed rice before reaching the right consistency, the balls becomes soggy.
Or if you missed the right stage and over boiled the syrup, you cannot make balls out of that and can eat as it is.
Use good quality jaggery better to use paagu vellam/urundai vellam to get nice colour and to make balls.
 You can add little dry ginger powder also in the jaggery syrup.
In the end if puffed rice becomes dry reheat it for few seconds and make the balls.
