Ethapazham Aval Nanachathu

Ethapazham Aval Nachathu

Beaten rice/aval is often served as a quick and healthy tea time snack in Kerala.Aval nanachathu is a mixture of aval, coconut, sugar and bananas. This is almost a similar version with caramelized plantains and jaggery.

Poha or aval - 1 1/2 cup
(I used the brown one)
Jaggery- powdered-1/2 cup
Roasted cashew nuts- a few
Roasted Sesame seeds- 3 tbs
Shredded coconut- 1 cup
Raisins- 10-12 (optional)
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Ghee-1+1 tsp
Plantain ripe-2 medium
Sugar- 2 tbs

Cut plantains into small cubes. Toast sesame seeds till golden and set aside.Heat ghee in a pan and fry cashew nuts and raisins till golden and keep aside.Add the plantains and fry slightly, saute and turn to the other sides and fry. Add sugar and allow to caramelize for about 3-4 minutes till the caramelized sugar gets well coated.

Take aval in a large bowl and add coconut,ghee, powdered jaggery and cardamom powder. Mix well with your hands till the aval becomes wet. Sprinkle 2-3 tbs of water if necessary till the aval becomes soft and wet. Mix the toasted nuts, raisins, sesame seeds and caramelized plantains. Mix well and serve with tea.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
