The post for today is also a part of the same principal. When we crave for a chai time snack which is not elaborate but can literally dance on our taste buds, then this is it. Umma keeps stock of beaten rice flakes – aval – everytime, which she normally puts into her tea and drinks, just like how you can have cereal. Sometimes, she makes this and I also do, and we all enjoy it to the maximum.
Avalum Pazhavum - Beaten Rice Flakes with Plantains
- 1 cup beaten rice flakes
- 1 large plantain chopped
- 4 tbsp jaggery grated (as per taste)
- 4 tbsp grated coconut
- A pinch cardamom
- 1 tsp ghee
- Wash the aval and drain.
- Heat the ghee in a saucepan and saute the flakes till crisp.
- Add in the remaining ingredients, give it a nice mix and cook on low flame till the jaggery melts. Serve warm with chai!!!
