Aval/poha/beaten rice - 1 cup
Cardamom powder- a pinch[optional]
- Wash the aval in a colander and transfer into a bowl.
- Put in the coconut[the quantity is purely at your discretion],jaggery[according to taste] and cardamom.
- Mix gently and serve.
There are two varieties of Aval - the thick and thin varieties.
If you are using the thin variety, wash the aval in a colander and use immediately.If you let it stand too long,it will get soggy.
If using the thick variety,wash aval and put in a vessel.Sprinkle a little water,cover and let it stand for 10 minutes or till it is soft.Then use it in the recipe.
