Sri Krishna Jayanthi is falling on Sunday this year and if you are looking for some simple and quick recipe to make for the festival, try this super easy aval or poha laddu. Aval or rice flakes is considered to be Lord Krishna's favorite. This laddu is perfect for working people as it can be done within 15-20 minutes.
I followed my rava laddu recipe for making this aval laddu. There is another version of this laddu made with jaggery which I will post sometime later. The cardamom lends a beautiful subtle flavor to the laddus. Store the laddu in an airtight container and it stays good for a week, but I'm sure it won't last so long!
Notes and Tips
- Make sure to grind the poha finely otherwise it will be difficult to form balls.
- You can add few tablespoons of warm milk if the mixture is too dry.
- You can use thin or thick variety poha. I have used medium thick poha.
