Aval vilayichathu

This delicious snack from Kerala. One of my favourite “Nalumani Palaharam” (tea time snacks) while growing up. Though it’s considered as a tea time snack, I used to have it for breakfast and lunch also. During my childhood days, whenever there was a big family get together, Aval Vilayichathu was one of the regular items. Since it can be made in advance and stored, it was always a go to recipe for huge gatherings. It’s always a good snack to have when you’ve a battalion of hungry kids to feed 🙂
