Aval Puttu

Cooks in: 10 Minutes Serves: 2 People

Aval or poha Puttu is a traditional dish which can be prepared within 10 minutes. A simple easy and healthy dish which even children would love to indulge. I used Finger Millet or Ragi flakes for this recipe. 


  • 2 Cups Finger Millet/Ragi Aval/Flakes
  • 3/4 Cup Palm Sugar or Jaggery Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
  • 1 Tbsp Ghee
  • 2 Tbsp Ghee fried cashewnut pieces
  • 1/2 Tsp Cardamom Powder
  • A small pinch of salt


  1. Heat a pan and roast the flakes for a minute on low heat. Switch off.
  2. Once cooled, crush them slightly with hands.
  3. Mix salt and add a few tablespoons of water. The flakes should be moist. So add very little water at a time.
  4. Steam the flakes for 5 minutes in a cooker. Let it cool down.
  5. Add palm sugar or jaggery, cardamom powder, ghee and coconut.
  6. Mix well and serve.
