Aval is very important Neivedyam for gokulashtami. Lord Krishna likes aval very much. I already posted aval payasam recipe. Now I made aval laddu for Aval vikadan magazine Gokulashtami recipes. It is very simple and tasty ladoo with easily available ingredients. I made it with sugar. You can make it with jaggery also.
Now let us see how to make
- Thick aval(poha) – 1 cup
- Sugar – ½ cup
- Ghee – ¼ cup
- Cashew – 3
- Raisin – 8
- Cardamom – 2
Dry roast aval in a pan till nice aroma comes. Keep aside to cool down. Grind it in a mixer nicely. Add sugar and cardamom in a mixer and grind nicely. Fry cashew and raisin in little ghee. Melt ghee. Add aval powder, sugar powder, fried cashew raisin and melted ghee in a bowl. Mix well and make balls when it is warm.
You can use any nuts of your choice.
You can use red aval also.
You can use jaggery or country sugar also.
