Avalose Unda is a delicious and traditional styled snack, very popular in Kerala Cuisine. This is also a Christmas time treat well favored by kids as well as elders. This is an enjoyable tea time snack that is usually prepared at various times in a year. Proper frying of Avalose Podi grants longer shelf life and it can be stored for months together. This is an easy to prepare treat. Two vital points have to be noted while preparing Avalose Unda. While roasting the rice flour mixture with coconut, take care that the flour is roasted in low flame. Otherwise the rice flour mixture will be too much browned and it will lose the texture. The other vital point is that jaggery should not be cooked beyond the one string consistency which will make the laddus hard and stone like. Kids and elderly will find it hard to relish such hard Avalose Unda. Munching on soft laddus is a relishing experience and you will be tempted for more.
