Sweet Aval - Vella Aval

Sweet Aval or Vella (jaggery) Aval is quite famous in Tamil Nadu. This is made especially during Krishna Jayanthi. Considered Krishna's favourite.

My dad and I are crazy fans of anything with Jaggery. This one is an family favourite and easy one to make. Newest fan of this is my little one.


Aval/Poha 1 cup
Jaggery 1/2 cup and a little more :-)
Coconut 1/4 cup
Cardamom 1/4 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Take Poha in a sieve and run it under the tap for a minute or two. Let it sit and drain.

2. Powder the jaggery and add to the poha.

3. Add the coconut and cardamom and mix well.

It is ready to serve. If you let it sit for 10 minutes, it tastes even better.
