Sweet Poha or Sweet Avalakki/Aval/Atukulu


We often make Sweet Poha/Avalakki/Aval for the festivals and it is also prepared in the temples as an offering to the Lord. I prepared this for Navaratri Puja. It is really easy to prepare, with this Poha recipe requiring only four ingredients with 2 easy steps. But believe me, it tastes really great and Sweet Poha/Avalakki is a big hit with my family any time. Sweet Poha/Aval can be served as an evening snack or can be had when fastening.

Also check out Poha recipes posted my me earlier if you have not seen them – Tamarind Poha/Huli Avalakki, Curd Poha and Avalakki Upkari. Most of these can be prepared on a festival day which involves some fasting but they also make a great breakfast or evening snack.
