2 Ways Sweet Aval/Poha/Flattened Rice Flakes( Gluten free,Vegan)

I give you 2 ways of making Sweet Aval/Poha/Flattened Rice Flakes.This is Gluten free and almost no cook dessert or snack.

Aval/Poha

Aval /Poha is nothing but beaten rice flakes.They are both thick and thin varieties.It is called as in different names all over India.It is used in both sweet and savory dishes too.

How did I make Sweet Aval?

I made this sweet Aval for Gokulashtami,Janmashtami or Krishna Jayanthi. It’s birthday of Lord Krishna celebrated all over India in various ways.Aval/Poha is an important ingredient to present as ‘prasadam’ .It is one of the favorite thing of Lord Krishna.

I made it in two ways

1.Using sugar – which doesn’t need any cooking.

2.Using Jaggery/Palm Sugar – which requires you to make Jaggery syrup.

I used thin variety of Aval. So just washing will do. Doesn’t need to soak.Then add sugar/Jaggery and coconut.It is a healthy after school snack for kids.It’s really healthy and yummy.You need just 10 minutes to make this.

Making Jaggery syrup

The Jaggery version starts with making Jaggery syrup.Take jaggery in a pan along a tbsn water.Melt it and strain. Jaggery syrup is ready to use for making Sweet Aval.
