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.

Dear Maria Mam,
in the AVAL VILAYICHATHU, we have added Cheruparippu ( Moong Dal )
due to non availability of Pottu Kadala ( Roasted Gram Dal ).
It was very tasty.
Thanks & Regards,
It was very easy to prepare, delicious, far better than fast food snacks and keep it for 3 days
in room temp. We are regularly preparing your great recipes.
Thanks & Regards,
Thank you so much :) Happy to know that you liked this recipe.
Btw, please call me Maria :)
One doubt..should I first wet the aval before putting it to the jaggery?? I tried the recipe and the aval is kind of hard.. Or is that how its supposed to b.. :) never had it before
I added the aval just like that. The texture of this dish is a bit crunchy and not soft like aval nanachathu. however it should not be too hard also.
Hi Marias, I am a true fan of your blog, however, I was surprised at the step-by-step ingredients list, which states “black gram” which is actually “urad dal” while the cooking instructions state “potu kadala” which should be “roasted gram”, sure this must be a typo :)
Thank you so much for pointing it out, yeah it was a mistake from my side. I’ve corrected it now, it’s pottukadala only..
Nice to know that you like the blog, thanks :)
