Aval puttu
Aval vella puttu is a traditional dish made with poha and jaggery as a main ingredient. I have already posted arisi vella puttu recipe with video, this is even more easier on made using aval. Though i have tried this few years back, i didn’t get the consistency right that time. But now after asking tips on making puttu from one of our close family friend , I tried at home yesterday. It turned out well and was too soft too. As today being thai velli and pournami (full moon day) i thought i will post the recipe of aval vella puttu, as we call in tamil. If you are a sweet lover just make this easy recipe at home and enjoy the puttu.

Notes:
  1. Sprinkling hot water makes the puttu soft. Do not sprinkle water and make the puttu immediately.
  2. Do not add too much water at a time. Slowly sprinkle water to get the sandy texture.
  3. This puttu stays soft for more than 3 hours.
  4. Keep in a airtight container to retain softness.
  5. The jaggery was just perfect, if you need this more sweeter, add 1-2 tblsp extra and not more than that.

Hello, could you tell me what brand of a grinder do you use? I would like to buy some, but I cannot buy any here in the Czech republic so I was thinking about buying it from the amazon, but I just do not know what kind of a grinder is the best. Could you recommend me some? I would be very grateful for any advice. Thank you

Hi i use Ultra grinder for the past 15 years and it is quite good. You get the grinder in 2 different capacities. I hope you are asking the one which we used to grind Idli |dosa batter and not the blender.

Well so I rather think the blender then. I need something so that I could mix the different kinds of spices in it. As it is in your pictures above I think that it is what I need.
