Beaten Rice Flakes (Aval in Malayalam and Poha or, Chevda in Hindi) is a favorite in most parts of India. You will find one or, the other recipes using this. In parts of Bihar, you will find it in Doodh-Chevda-Kela (combination of milk, rice flakes and banana), in Maharashtra it is in the form of roasted flakes, also know as Chevda fry and Aloo poha.
In southern India, it takes a completely different form and it is liked in a sweeter version. Aval Varattiyathu or, Aval Velayichathu, as it is called in Kerala is specialty of my mother-in-law. The first time she made it, I simply couldn’t stop eating. This recipe is made up of rice flakes and jaggery. You can also add dry fruit depending upon your choice.
Grated coconut is also used which gives it a nice taste and flavor. How much jaggery you are using will depend upon how sweet do you want it to be.
This recipe can be stored for a few days, so don’t worry about having to consume it all in one go.
