  2. i love anything with jaggery an dthis a new dish for me with so much of fresh coconut...my husband is going to love this...but i have a question....how is it supposed to be eaten , instantly or after a while , as the poha will get a bit chewy or soggy i think..the flavors are awesome but enlighten me about how it's going to be savored...

  4. I make this too, but I rinse and soak aval for about 10 minutes, drain and then mix. Adding dry aval is a new thing to me.
