Aval Laddu

We are visiting India for 2 weeks while enjoying the mango season, not-so-hot weather and, little pleasures like freshly made rice flakes from local farmers. These simple treats are made with simple and local ingredients. Red rice flakes from a local farmer and fresh coconut from our backyard.


Aval (Red rice flakes) - 1 1/2 cups
Shredded fresh coconut - 1 1/2 cups
Jaggery - 3 medium blocks - make syrup with 1 cup water
Chopped almonds & raisins - handful
Cardamom - 2 crushed
Clarified butter- 1 Tbs.

Mix everything together. Sauté over medium heat till any extra moisture is evaporated. While still warm, make balls. Makes about 12 - 15 laddus.
