Aval/Poha/Flattened Rice

Grated Coconut
1 cup
One big pinch
Cardamom Powder/Elachi Powder
¼ tsp
Preparation Time: 10-12 minutes                      Recipe Category: Dessert
Author: Priya Anandakumar                             Recipe Cuisine: Tamil Nadu, India

I have used white thick aval, you can choose any aval of your choice red or white, thin or thick whichever is available.

Wash the poha thoroughly with water for 2-3 times and drain it. Soak for about 10-12 minutes. If you are using thin poha, wash it and soak it only for about 3-5 minutes.

Squeeze out the excess water from the poha and keep it aside for another 10-15 minutes for thick variety and for about 10 minutes for thin variety. Make sure the aval/poha is soft irrespective of whatever type of poha/aval you are using.

Meanwhile grate the jaggery, grate the coconut and keep it ready.

Add one big pinch of salt to the aval/poha.

Now add the grated jaggery to the aval/Poha.

Then add the grated coconut to the aval/poha.

Finally add ¼ tsp of cardamom powder/elachi powder to the aval/poha.

Mix everything really well and until evenly mixed.

Yes, delicious and healthy Sweet Aval/Inippu Aval is ready to be enjoyed. Sprinkle some grated coconut and offer it for Pooja as neivedhyam or serve it evening snacks for kids.

I have used clean jaggery, so I have add the grated jaggery as such. You can make a simple and thick jaggery syrup by boiling 2 tsp of water with jaggery and filter it to remove impurities. After the syrup cools down add it to the Aval/Poha.

You can also add roasted cashew nuts finally for garnishing.
