Poha laddu is a traditional South Indian sweet balls usually made with flattened rice or beaten rice and sugar or jaggery. I have added some peanuts to the traditional aval laddu or poha laddu to enhance the taste and texture.


1. Firstly heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan and roast poha on a medium flame until it's crisp or it changes it color. keep aside and roast the peanuts.

2. Now in the same pan, add 1/2 tbsp ghee and add dry coconut, sesame seeds, dry fruits until they are golden brown.

3. In a mixture jar, blend the poha into powder. empty the poha powder in a deep plate.

4. Now in the same jar, add roasted peanuts, dry fruits n coconut mixture with grated jaggery and pulse it for 3-4 times. don't make a fine powder of it.

5. In a poha powder, add remaining half tbsp ghee and peanuts ,dry fruits and jaggery mixture.

6. Mix all these things properly with your hands and add nutmeg and cardamom powder. and start making laddus, u can easily bind it.

7. And your laddus are ready, here you get 12-14 medium size laddus !
