Aval Payasm/ Sweet poha
This is a dish made for Lord Guruvayoorapan on "Mupittu Bhudhanaicha" which means first Wednesday of Malayalam Calender. This is done by my grandma who's the best cook on earth (according to me).
Poha /Flattened Rice is rice flattened to dry flakes by passing them on heavy metal rolls. Before the process rice is dehusked. There are two varieties of Poha available in the market they are the brown poha and the white one. The brown poha is made from brown rice and the latter is made from white rice.
Poha is made of rice and is a rich source of Carbohydrate. Its easy to cook and digest. Most of the poha recipe use nil or very less oil and is a good tummy filler.
