Poha Ladoo

My Notes:

  • I used thick poha, you can use any variety you have either thick / thin or even red aval.
  • Make sure to roast the poha well else it will give a raw taste.
  • For frying cashews and raisins I used 2 tsp from that 1/4 cup ghee itself.
  • Adding fried gram dal gives a nice flavour to the ladoos.
  • The ladoo keeps well for 5-6 days.
  • Make sure you break all the lumps, mix well then shape them into ladoos.

  1. Nice version of aval ladoo lovely clicks

  2. WOW! I was happy to see the Aval Puttu recipe as I was planning to do it for Gokulashtami.. And the Aval Ladu is also very tempting.. So going to do both. Thank you so much for sharing it.

  3. Tried them today.. Really easy and yummy laddoos! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I tried Aval ladoos for Gokulashtami and it came so well... Received lot of appreciation from Neighbours in U.S. Thank you for sharing :)

  5. I tried these laddoos with the same exact measurements. However, while shaping the laddoos the ghee seemed to be a bit more and hence the laddoos were not tight. Did I miss something

    1. Oh not really sure....I have tried this 2-3 times so far and I used 1/4 cup ghee only....dod you melt and measure?

  6. Mixie got heat...aval is not grinding nicely

    1. If you roast till crisp then it will easily grind

  7. The aval laddo is so tasty, thank you!
