Cocoa Aval Urundai (Cocoa Rice Flakes Laddu)

I am back with another recipe using Aval (Rice Flakes). The pack containing these flakies had a brief recipe on these laddus. Of course i cannot let a good recipe be-- i gave a chocolate y twist to the recipe by mixing cocoa powder. Green Pistachios were further added to make it a delectable sweet ! They tasted really delightful and i couldn't wait to post it !




Ingredients:- (Makes 15)


Aval / Rice Flakes - 1 Cup (approx 75 gms)
Sugar - 1 Cup

Cocoa Powder - 1 tbsp - to taste
Cashews - 1/2 cup - to taste
Green Pistachios - 1/4 cup - to taste
Cardamom - 2 to 3 pods
Dessicated coconut - to taste

Raisins - for garnish (optional)
Ghee (clarified butter) - 1/2 cup - as needed





Here's How:-

Dry roast rice flakes till golden brown. Care should be taken not to scorch/burn them !





Grind together the roasted rice flakes, cashews, pistachios, sugar, cardamom and the coconut into a fine powder. Add cocoa powder and give it a quick pulse.






Heat the ghee and let it remain on low flame. On a lightly greased plate/tray spill the powdered contents and garnish them with raisins (u can also add sliced dessicated coconut or cashws) .



Add hot ghee little by little as needed and shape it into laddoos. The hot liquid helps in shaping them; i have to say my rounds are not perfect but am getting there ! The quantity of ghee specified can be adjusted as needed.






I also made a small batch without adding cocoa powder --
