Aval Urundai Recipe | Gokulashtami / Krishna Jayanthi Recipes

Aval Urundai  Recipe
Last week during a chat session, my cousin sis gave me the idea of posting homemade butter and aval urundai for gokulashtami. Though I had planned for a stepwise homemade butter post, it didnt strike me for the occassion so a big thanks to her for motivating me for this post. Butter and aval are lord krishnas favourite so here I am with this post. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making, clicking and writing this post :)

My Notes:
