Aval ladoo recipe | poha ladoo | easy janmashtami recipes

by Jeyashri suresh

Aval ladoo | poha ladoo is a easy sweet recipe, which you can try for this Janmasthami |Gokulashtami. I wanted to post this recipe of aval ladoo last year too, but somehow it didn’t come out well. This time i realised where i went wrong, and again tried it. It was super easy recipe to make and for working women, who are running short of time , can make this in a jiffy and offer for neivedhyam.


Aval urundai

  Preparation Time :10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 Mins |  Yields :10

     Aval | Poha     1 cup (any variety)
     Sugar              1/2 cup
     Ghee               1/4 cup
     Cardamom powder    Apinch
     Cashew nuts    6


  • Roast cashew nuts in 1 tsp of oil till golden brown. Keep this aside.
  • Take out the dust or stones if any from the poha.
  • In a separate pan roast the poha . Dry roast the poha.
  • Roast in a low flame till it becomes crispy.

poha -roast

  • Powder this finely and put this in a wide pan. Add the powdered sugar and roasted cashew nuts to this. Add the cardamom powder.


  • Melt the ghee in the pan for a minute. The ghee should be hot.
  • Add this to the sugar+poha+cashew mixture. Mix well with a spoon.

Aval- urundai

  • When this mixture is warm, take small portion of the mixture in hand and start making balls. This yielded 10 ladoos plus one small ladoo too.


  • Ladoos are ready for neivedhyam.


  1. Never roast the poha in ghee. Always dy roast it. Else it will become soggy and can’t make ladoos.
  2. Sugar you can reduce 1 or 2 tblsp.
  3. If you feel the mixture is too dry to make ladoo, add few drops of melted ghee and make ladoos.
  4. some people many add few drops of milk, but this will reduce the shelf life.
  5. These ladoos stay nice for a week in room temperature in a airtight container.
  6. Handle with clean hands.
