Aval Milk Recipe - Milk Aval - Avil Milk - Aval Milkshake Recipe

aval milkshake

Aval Milk or Milk Avil or Milkaval or Avil Milk or Aval Milkshake also popularly known as malappuram muttayi is a popular malabar milkshake made with aval or avil (beaten rice flakes), pazham (plantains), and roasted peanuts. The bliss of living in Kozhikode is being able to indulge in milkshakes; every street or bakery has a popular milkshake parlour to boast about. It will be injustice to name a few here; almost all the cool bars serve this milkshake.

But, if you travel to the interiors of the district; aval milk is made slightly different, they simply put one pazham into a glass with some sugar and with a wooden blunt spoon it is mashed and then roasted aval and peanuts are added and then topped with cold milk. Somehow, I do not like that version and I prefer this version which many cool bars in the city makes and having noticed this method in popular cool bars near medical college and Manachira, I tried at home for my kids and they simply loved it. So, sharing this easy and healthy milkshake; I am sure you will love this.
