If you take a trip to the past, you may seldom hear our ancestors suffering from diseases like our generation faces. Let’s accept the fact that a few decades ago, every snack was made with fresh ingredients whether at home or good old sweet shops. More importantly, they were not used to eat processed or preserved food as we do now. Fortunately, it is possible to make delicious home-cooked sweets and savories at home with recipes like aval ladoo.

Aval ladoo is one of the easiest and the tastiest snacks that can be rustled up quickly. Aval also known as ‘poha’ in most states of India is flattened rice. In Andhra and Telangana states, it is known as ‘atukulu’. Aval ladoo is a preferred snack as it is a healthier version of the regular ladoo and works best even for people recovering from digestive troubles or viral infection.
