Recipe For Aval Puttu

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
Serves: 4
Shelf life: a day or two


  • 1 1/2 cup Powdered beaten rice (Poha) (to get 11/2 glass powder, you have to use 3 glass of poha)
  • 1 1/4 cup Jaggery
  • Handful of grated coconut
  • Handful of coconut bits
  • 6 tbsp Ghee
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
  • Few cashew nuts


  1. Clean the poha and grind to a fine powder in a mixer. (Use the jada poha)

  3. Melt the jaggery in 1/4 cup water and remove impurities.
  4. In the same kadai, pour the jaggery syrup and boil till you find 2-3 strings. (NOTE: To check this, remove the spatula from the jaggery, dip your hand in water and touch the jaggery in the spatula with your index finger and touch the thumb, press it and open the fingers, you will be able to see the strings forming in between your fingers. Another method is to  drop the jaggery in little water and remove it from the water you should be able to form a small ball out of it. At this stage, remove the same from the gas.)
