Huli Avalakki ( Spicy Flattened Rice ) / Masala Poha Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 11:03:00
Cooking an ideal breakfast everyday is one of the most annoying tasks to face. The most common scenario during mornings in every house is an hustle atmosphere and the recipe which I am publishing today, I guess, it might help at least a few of them. Huli avalakki, as the name itself suggests, is a snack prepared out of avalakki ( beaten rice ), which is globally known as poha. Usually poha is available in two or three types. Here I have used a hard variety which is easily available in the departmental stores. This dish is a south Indian recipe but I hope every one would love it as it is very easy and simple to prepare. I have already published one recipe of poha but, in that recipe I have used soft variety of avalakki ( i,e nylon poha ).

However, in this recipe avalakki is mixed with tamarind juice and jaggery.

Kitchen Masti Points.

  1. Use only the hard variety of poha for this recipe because the soft ones might turn soggy when soaked in water.
  2. You can increase the amount of jaggery as per your taste.
  3. 2 green chillis can be chopped and mixed if you prefer a spicier taste.
  4. You can increase the quantity of oil by 1 - 2 tbsp if you are not that health conscious.
