Aval laddu recipe      
Krishna Jayanthi is only 2 days away, so are you still thinking what to make for the festival? Are you scared of trying out the deep fried recipes like seedai, murukku and thattai?  Don’t worry, here is an easy recipe that has lord Krishna’s favorite – Aval / Poha and ghee. Only 3 main ingredients and the laddu is ready within 30 mins. It tastes similar to our rava ladoo except for the flavour of poha instead rava. I made it in small quantity, perfect for nuclear families.

Aval laddu/ Poha ladoo recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Makes: 9

Ingredients


Aval/ Poha/ flattened rice  1 cup 
Sugar  1/2 cup 
Ghee  1/4 cup 
Cashew nuts  3 
Dried raisins  8 
Elachi/ cardamom  2 

Method

  1. If you have ‘muram’ you can dust the aval otherwise also you can use a plate and spread the poha, carefully take out the poha leaving the dust at the bottom. Remove any impurities you see. Dry roast the poha until golden in colour. Cool down.1-aval-laddu
  2. Grind to make a flour/ fine powder. Grind sugar also with the elachi seeds to fine powder.2-aval-laddu
  3. Heat ghee and break the cashews to very tiny pieces and fry until golden. Add raisin and fry till fluffy.3-aval-laddu
  4. Take the powdered ingredients in a mixing bowl and add the heated ghee to it. Mix well and make ladoos out of it.4-aval-laddu

Notes

  • Make sure to roast the poha well and grind it finely.
  • Elachi is must needed for lending a divine flavour.
  • Use ghee and sugar as mentioned for perfect taste.
  • Make sure to finely break the cashews and also do not add more than required, otherwise it will be difficult for shaping the ladoos.
  • Ladoos are fragile, so carefully handle it. If not ground finely, it will be hard to hold its shape.

Easy aval/ poha laddus are ready to offer God, Krishna and enjoy the laddus! Poha, ghee and sugar with tangy raisins makes a wonderful combination!

    1. Thanks for the feedback :) May be its not powdered finely? because the ghee measurement here is perfect to hold the shape. Also you have to heat the ghee b4 adding it and make ladoos. But I agree we have to put some pressure b4 it holds and forms a shape :)
