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.
