My Krishna Jayanthi celebrations post that I had missed to publish....

It has been a very busy week with Krishna Janmastami celebrations. IT always brings fond memories of making snacks with my perima and amma, decorating Krishna with flowers and in the end singing songs all evening. It was a very fun celebration at our home and my sister Sowmya and I always recollect those days. This year for Krishna Jayanthi, I made Poha Halwa, which is a little different from the Avil Kesari that I have posted here. It was very easy to prepare and can be done in under 10 Minutes. It was so perfect with puri and is one of my favorite halwas to prepare.


Measuring Cups and Spoons


Poha/ Avil - 1 cup powdered along with elachi
Elachi/ Cardamom - 3 pods
Ghee -  4 tbsps
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cashew Nuts - a few
Saffron - a few strands
Milk - 1/2 cup


1. Blend the poha with elachi into a fine powder.

2. Heat the wok with ghee, fry the cashews and set aside. Add the poha in the rest of the ghee and roast well until the aroma surfaces and poha looks roasted.

3. Add sugar and mix well along with milk and saffron.

4. Cook until the sugar blends well. Add the cashew nuts and serve hot with puris.
