Aval / poha / Riceflakes

2 cups


1 cup


½ cup


2 tbs



Raisins(Dry grapes)


Cardamom (powdered)


Coconut (grated)

3 tbs


1.Clean and wash the riceflakes. Soak the riceflakes for 5 mins. Then drain it for 15 mins by keeping it in the filter. (so that it becomes soft and non sticky)

2. Heat the ghee in a pan, fry the cashew nuts and dry grapes till cashews become golden color. Keep it aside.

3. Steam cook the riceflakes for 3 mins.

4. Heat the jaggery in a pan with ½ cup of water.

5. When the jaggery dissolves completely, switch off the stove.

6. Filter the syrup with steel filter. [Avoid nylon filter]

7. Mix the steam cooked rice flakes with the syrup. Then add the fried cashews and dry grapes. Mix them well and serve it hot.

It is a very healthy food and has more nutrients. This is advisable for those who want to reduce their weight as it has 0% cholesterol and alcohol.
