Aval halwa recipe, Poha halwa, Diwali recipes

Aval halwa/ Poha halwa is a new variety and a must try yummy and super quick to make halwa this diwali or for any other festival or special occasion. Yes this halwa is made with red poha/ aval and along with few handful ingredients to enrich its taste that too in very less time. If you are a beginner still looking for a quick fix then should do the job as it does not involve any cumbersome procedure in its making like any other halwa. This recipe can be made with white poha as well as the taste will still remain the same. For the below recipe I have used yellow edible food color which can be replaced with orange edible food color as well. So lets get to the making!
