Aval Varatiyathu - Poha (Beaten Rice) with Jaggery

Aval Varatiyathu - prepared with aval, jaggery, coconut, cashew nuts, fried grams and black sesame.  This dish is a popular sweet in Nanjil that's easy to make and tastes like karthigai vella pori. In most of the Nanjil dishes they add a good amount of coconut and jaggery.


For this dish use samba thin aval or white thin aval. Here we are going to saute the aval in a thick jaggery syrup, so no need to soak the aval. So do not use the thick variety aval because it will take more time to cook and it will also be harder. For 2 cups of aval add 1 cup of jaggery which will be perfect to coat the aval evenly. The coconut gratings can be added at the final stage without frying or you can add it while frying the cashew nuts. The roasted black sesame seeds add a nice flavour to any of the jaggery based desserts so do not skip it. With a wonderful balance of flavours the dish tastes so good. When tasting the sweet, you can feel how each mouthful is loaded with wonderful flavours.
