Serves: 10
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 10 Minutes

1 cup = 200 ml
  • Thick Aval/Poha - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom - 2 nos
  • Clove - 1 no
  • Melted ghee - 1/4 cup
  • Roasted cashews - few
  • Dry roast the thick aval/Poha in a kadai for 3-4 minutes in high flame with constant mixing. Please stay nearby and do this else aval may burn. So do it patiently till aval starts to puff up slightly with a nice smell. Its color will be slightly golden brown. Remove & let it cool ( you can roast 2 cardamom & 1 clove along with this. But I powdered it with sugar without roasting them.)

  • Powder the sugar along with cardamom & clove. Take in a bowl. Powder the poha and mix with sugar powder. Mix them well.
  • Heat the ghee and roast the chopped cashews. Add this ghee to the mixture. Mix well with a ladle till it turns warm. Now make balls and arrange them in a plate. Aval laddu is ready !

    Enjoy !
  • You can replace thick poha with thin poha.
  • You can also use powdered jaggery instead of sugar.
