The simple recipe is that Aval (Poha) is fried and roasted then cooked with Jaggery, then there is a version where Malar or popped rice and pieces of Kopra (dried meat of coconut) is also added to the mixture then cooked and sweetened with Jaggery.

Aval is the Malayalam wor for flattened or beaten rice flakes. It is called Poha in othe Indian States. In the Philippines, it is popularly known as Pinipig. It is called Reisflocken in German. (Please see related article on Aval).
