Aval Laddu is an easy and yummy treat that can be made in just 15 minutes. As Krishna Jayanthi is on the 25th of August, thought of posting this easy Aval Laddu. It will be a perfect neiyvedhyam for the occasion. Without any hassles even beginners can make this laddu easily. This can be made as an evening snack too.

Now to the recipe…




[Preparation Time- 15 mins : Cooking Time- 10 mins]


  • Aval / Poha – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Ghee – 4 tbsp
  • Cashewnuts – few (optional)





  • Spread the aval on a plate and check if there are any impurities. Now heat a pan and dry roast the aval until u get a nice aroma without changing its colour. This might take around 2-3 mins in low flame. Once it cools down, grind it into a fine powder. Keep it aside.

  • In the same mixer, grind the sugar into a fine powder. Add this to the poha powder and mix well. Heat a pan with ghee and roast the cashews until golden brown.

  • Add it to the poha and sugar mixture. Mix well. The mixture will look crumbled. Take a hand full of the mixture and shape it into laddoos. Keep it aside.

Thats it!! Aval Laddu is ready!!






  1. I have used medium variety poha. U can use any variety.
  2. Roast the aval/poha well in low flame, else it will have a raw smell and taste.
  3. Adjust sugar according to your preference.
  4. If u are not using cashews, just heat the ghee and then add it to the poha/sugar mixture and then make the Aval Laddu.
  5. Make sure to mix well and break the lumps before shaping the Aval Laddu.
