Amma's Aval Urundai / Poha Laddu (Ladoo) / Flattened Rice Flakes Balls - Krishna Jayanti Recipes

Poha & Butter is one of the staple food to present lord krishna on krishna jayanti. Krishna loves his poha and butter, you can make anything out of them to serve him. Amma always make aval urundai and aval varatiyathu for krishna jayanti every year. I was surprised that i didn't post these basic recipe in my blog till now. Thank god one of my viewer requested this recipe, so that i could make, click and post here.

Krishna jayanti and Vinayagar chaturthi is around the corner. So i should start posting recipes for that special occasions. I have quite a few recipes in my blog, but it is missing the essential recipe like thattai, seedai, purna kolukatai..I have quite a few recipes stocked up for vinayagar chaturthi, but still have to make for krishna jayanti. Will try to make them..

Now this recipe is so simple to make, this is my mum's version. It requires just grinding few stuffs together and shaping them into balls. But Some people soak the poha and then grind it up. I will post that version soon. But this is fast, fresh and simple to make. So try this out and let me know how it turned out.
