    That was really an easy recipe. Hey the poha needs to be north indian or south indian because both have a lot of difference, one is hard and the other soft.

    Poha is an English word? :s

    I like all laddus. 😀 Though I prefer the really sweet orange/yellow one the best.
    There is no cooking involved,yes! This I can try 😀 Thanks.

    LR – the photos are very nice, although am not the biggest fan of aval. My grandma used vellam/jaggery for this. The family loved aval kesari. I recently came across a super easy recipe for “phirni” with poha. I’ll mail it to you. My folks love poha upma best…what with the living-in-Mumbai half our lives connection
