Aval Nanachatu simply known as Aval refers to sweetened flattened or beaten rice called Aval in Malayalam and known as Poha in other Indian languages. 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.
