Sweetened poha/aval/flat/beaten rice

I have been missing BHW for sometime now because of the vacations and other reasons.But its always a pleasure to participate.Its a fun idea to not only explore other blogs in minute detail but also to try out their dishes.



This time i have been paired with Nirmala, i have chosen her sweet poha - its such a yummy and tasty and yes one quick snack...did i forget to mention healthy too!I tried this with red poha/aval the first time and it definitely makes a huge difference to the taste.This dish though i have used white aval/poha its tasty nonetheless.



You need

Poha/flattened rice 1 cup soaked and drained until soft
Jaggery 2 tablespoon scrapped or chopped roughly
Coconut scraped 1 tablespoon
Salt a pinch
Banana slices optional
Sugar to sprinkle

For the tempering
Oil 1 tablespoon
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Baby onions 5 6 nos chopped finely
Urad dal 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp


  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, curry leaves, baby onions, urad dal and cumin seeds allow to fry.
  • Next add the softened poha and mix well with salt to taste.
  • Add the jaggery scrappings and mix well until the jaggery melts or if you like it as chunks just heat it for 2 minutes and turn it off.
  • Sprinkle sugar and scrapped coconut as per your taste.You can add mashed or chopped bananas to this as well.



  • Serve hot and adjust the amount of jaggery according to your sweet tooth.i like it a a lot sweeter :)
