Basic Ingredients used for this recipe
Poha or Aval: There are 3 basic kinds of poha available in the market. Paper aval, medium aval or thick aval. You can use any kind of poha, depending on the availability.
Jaggery – I preferebly use organic jaggery to make caramel poha recipe. So I would suggest you also to do the same. Just to avoid dirt in it.
Sesame Seeds – I have used some sesame seeds here as it enhances the taste.
Ginger – Ginger can be added for extra flavor, addition of ginger is completely optional, personally I like the taste of ginger in it, but my daughter is completely opposite to me. Ginger is something she doesn’t like at all.
Things to be Taken Care of While Making Sweet Caramel Poha Recipe
Keep stirring while frying poha as it might get burn.
You can adjust the quantity of jaggery as per your taste.
This can stay fresh if stored in airtight container.
Take care, while cooking jaggery. If it spills onto your skin, it can get you burnt.

Sweet Caramel Poha Recipe
- 2 cup Poha
- 1/2 to 1 cup Jaggery
- 2-3 tbsp Sesame Seeds roasted
- 1 tsp Ginger
- In a Kadai dry roast poha on a high heat stirring in between, until light brown. As it turns brown remove it into a bowl or plate and let it cool down.
- Now in a heavy bottom kadai, pour in water and jaggery and melt jaggery completely by stirring well.
- Keep it stirring continuously on a medium flame until jaggery gets thick and sticky.
- You can test it by dropping thickened syrup drop in cold water in a bowl. If you could make a small ball out of it, or it hardens up, without getting diluted with water, the jaggery has reached the correct consistency.
- Now add roasted poha and roasted til and constantly stir well until the poha and til gets mixed with jaggery.
- Switch off the flame. Let it cool down completely.
- Once it gets cold, store it in airtight container.
