Atukula Payasam with Jaggery - Aval Payasam - Rice flakes Payasam

Aval Payasam is made with Roasted Poha in a ghee, & simmered in a thick milk, jaggery is added for sweetness  & finally  Garnished with Cashews & Raisins. Poha is favourite for krishna, so I am posting this payasam  for Krishna Jayanthi. Poha is a filling Ingredient, which provides energy till next meal, so this Payasam is also taken during fasting or Upvas.
