Aval Laddu | Poha Ladoo

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!


{ Flattened rice flakes balls with ghee, cardamom, cashew nuts and raisins }
Makes 10


1 ½ cup aval / poha
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
¼ cup ghee
5-6 cashews, broken
5-6 raisins


1. In a pan, dry roast the poha until it turns slightly golden. Set aside to cool and grind to a fine powder.

2. Grind the sugar along with cardamom powder to fine powder. Add to the poha and mix well.

3. Heat 1 tsp ghee in a pan. Add the cashew nuts and fry till golden. Set aside. Now add the raisins and fry till they puff up.

4. Add this to the poha-sugar mixture and mix well. Heat the remaining ghee and pour into the poha mixture. Combine well with a spoon.

6. When mixture is warm, make small lemon sized balls. Allow it to rest for 15-20 minutes. 

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.
