Vella Aval/Sweetened Rice flakes

                                           .My mother used to make this when we were small...Later when we grew up our taste buds changed and kind of forgotten these (traditional)simple recipes.Now  I want to record these kind of traditional recipes here.



You will Need

  • One cup Aval(rice flakes) 
  • 3/4cup powdered Jaggery
  • Two Tbs of scraped Coconut
  • A pinch of Cardamom powder
  • A pinch of Edible camphor
  • Few cashew nuts(broken)
  • One tbs of Ghee
How To
1.Wash the rice flakes in running water and keep aside(it becomes soft).
2.Dissolve the jaggery in 1/4 cup of hot water and filter it for impurities.
3.Boil the jaggery water till it becomes thick(double string consistency).
4.Cool it add it to the washed and squeezed(without any water) flakes.
5.Add cardamom powder,edible camphor and scraped coconut.
6.Fry the broken cashew nuts in ghee and add finally and mix well.


Suggestions
  • Make sure the aval(rice flakes)do not stick to each other.
  • The jaggery syrup has to be really thick.
  • You can add fried raisins along with the cashew nuts.
  • It is a quick  and easy neivedhyam for god.
  • And it is a food on fasting days.
