One of my fav “Nalumani Palaharam” (tea time snacks) while growing up. Though it's considered as a tea time snack, I used to have it for breakfast and lunch also. During my childhood days, whenever there was a big family get together, Aval Vilayichathu was one of the regular items. Since it can be made in advance and stored, it was always a go to recipe for huge gatherings. It's always a good snack to have when you've a battalion of hungry kids to feed :)
Sometimes I get mails, asking for recipes which can be used for road trips. This dish stays fresh for 2-3 days at room temp, so if you are looking for a snack for your road trips, this is a good one.
