Do you get excited when you can get some thing special from simple ingredients? Well I do and I can say Aval/Poha ladoo belong to this category. When I was young I knew only Aval nanachathu from aval/poha. After coming here only I started learning from my North Indian friends variety that can be prepared from this simple ingredient. Will little doubt only I started making this ladoo. But believe me its so simple to make and ladoo which come out is soft, little crispy is a perfect Sweet Recipe.
Aval Ladoo Recipe
Ingredients: (Makes 14 small ladoos)
- Aval/Poha – 1 ½ cup
- Ghee – 1/3 cup
- Dry fruits (Raisins) – 1 ½ Tbsp
- Powdered Sugar – 1/3 cup
- Cardamom – 3 pods
(Note: 1 cup = 250 ml
Vary the amount of sugar as per your sweet level)
Method: (With Step-by-Step Pictures)
Dry roast the poha for 8-10 mins or until its starts to become golden brown in color.
You need make ladoos when its warm, otherwise it will dry and you will find it difficult to make ladoos. (Also melt little ghee and keep it in your side. If you are finding it difficult to make it to small balls add this ghee little at a time and make ladoos. If you want to reduce the usage of add very little warm milk and make ladoos. But to get the exact taste you need to add ghee itself.)
