Aval Vilayichathu/ Sweet Poha

Aval Vilayichathu is quick and easy snack that can be prepared in batches and stored for over a month. Beaten rice is always considered to serve as a quick breakfast or snack. It is a traditional snack which is made with jaggery and poha and enriched with coconut and nuts. Children would love this healthy snack.

Ingredients
Poha or aval - 1 1/2 cup
Jaggery- powdered-250 grams
Roasted Peanuts- 3/4 cup
Roasted Sesame seeds- 1/2 cup
Shredded coconut- 1/2 cup
Raisins- 15
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee- 3-4 tsp

Roast peanuts and sesame seeds and keep it aside.
Boil jaggery along with two cups of water till the jaggery dissolves and switch off the flame. Strain in down in a strainer so that there will not be any impurities. Put in back to the stove and allow to reduce and to attain a two thread consistency. Add in the coconut. You will notice that it will again become a bit watery. Stir in between and when it reaches a gel consistency add roasted sesame seeds, peanuts and cardamon powder. Finally add poha and evenly coat with the jaggery mixture. In a separate pan roast raisins in ghee and pour in over the sweet poha and blend well. We can store this is tight containers or you can refrigerate it.

Here another version without sesame seeds and peanuts. Here I have added raisins and cashew nuts.



Try this easy snack...

Hope you will all enjoy.
