About Avalose Unda Recipe

One of my grandma's speciality is her Avalose Unda. Everytime we returned from Kerala or whenever she visited us, there would be a tin of Avalose Unda with her. Sharing my grandma's recipe here, though today You easily get readymade Podi in market, I still prefer traditional way and my grandmother makes it best. This snack is also popularly called as nallu mani palharam(4oclock Snack) in Kerala. Avalose podi has quite health benefits and can be consumed as is or with little sugar mixed. Since I have sweet tooth, my Grandma used to make her special unda. Enjoy these yummy unda as snack or dessert
