Jyoti Aval or Poha is made from Jyoti Red Rice from Kerala. Jyoti Aval is of medium thickness, has a pleasant nutty flavour and 100% bran content. You can make a variety of dishes with Jyoti Aval. It is a good replacement for oats and sugary cereals. You can make muesli by combining the aval with chopped almonds, figs and fresh fruit. You can also make a porridge by pouring hot milk over lightly rinsed avail and sweetening it with raw cane sugar or nattusakkarai. ‘Aval Nanachathu’ is a favourite Kerala sweet. The aval is given a quick rinse, combined with freshly grated coconut and cane sugar and topped with sliced bananas and served to children as a healthy evening snack.
Aval is also called poha, rice flakes, beaten rice, flattened rice or pressed rice in India.
