Gokulashtami / Sri Krishna Jayanthi falls on 5th September this year. Seedai, murukku and thattai are some of the traditional snacks prepared for this festival. The neivedhyam (offerings) will be incomplete without Lord Krishna's favorites - aval (flattened rice) and butter. Mostly we make vella aval, but apart from that you can make payasam, laddu or kesari with aval/poha.
Kesari is mostly prepared with rava/semolina. This aval kesari is quite similar to rava kesari. I just followed my rava kesari recipe and made few changes to make this kesari. If you are a working women or a beginner cook, this aval kesari is a really easy recipe and takes very less time too. Try this easy sweet for gokulashtami this year.
Notes and Tips
- The aval/poha should be ground to a rava/semolina like consistency.
- Make sure the aval is cooked well before adding sugar.
