Sihi Avalakki/Sweet Poha/Sweetened Rice Flakes For Sri Krishna Janmastami



Sihi Avalakki is a simple and very easy sweet which doesn't need any cooking and can make it in a jiffy.It is said that Lord Krishna is very fond of Avalakki and if we offer him Avalakki he will be pleased and bless us with boons.As  we all know story of Sudhama,who offered Lord Krishna a fistful of  Avalakki and in return Sri Krishna blessed him with lot of  good fortune.From childwood I am very fond of this dish and I learnt it and used to do it whenever I feel like eating sweet.Happy Janmastami To all of you...

Ingredients:
Avalakki/Poha/Rice flakes-1cup (Thick Variety)
Powdered Jaggery/Bella-2-3Tbsp or to taste
Grated dry coconut-1/4cup
Cardamom Powder-Pinch

Method:
1.Wash the avalakki thoroughly 3-4 times or until the water appears clear.Soak Avalakki for 2-3 minutes and drain the water and squeeze out the excess water with clean hands.
2.Take  a bowl, add the avalakki and all the remaining ingredients and mix well,and sihi avalakki is ready to offer to Sri Krishna.

Note:
1.I have used a white jaggery thats why the colour is not showing up and I have mixed powdered jaggery.
2.Jaggery can be melted and mix with avalakki.
3.Dry fruits and nuts also can be added.
