AVLAKKI UPKARI RECIPE / HACHIDA AVALAKKI / EASY MASALA POHA RECIPE
- 2 cup Poha / beaten rice / avalakki, thin / nylon variety
- 1 small onion, ( Optional ) Finely chopped
- 3/4-1 cup coconut, grated
- 1 -2 tsp Rasam powder
- 2 tsp Salt
- 2 tsp Jaggery
- 2-3 tsp Coconut Oil / Any oil
- 1 tsp Mustard
- 1 tsp Urad dal
- 1-2 no Green Chilli, Slit
- few Curry Leaves
- 1 Red Chilli, broken
- in a mixing bowl take salt , jaggery, rasam powder, grated coconut and onion ( if you are adding ) . As said earlier, the addition of onion is optional.
- Mix nicely using your hands crushing it a bit such that onion and coconut leaves little moisture .
- Add thin poha .Mix well with your hands. Moisture from onion and coconut should help it to become little soft. Let it sit for 5-10 mins so that it absorbs flavor . However, if you want to serve oldies and kids, you can drizzle just a few drops of water and mix to make it little more soft.
- After mixing poha and masala .. this is how it looks . I have sprinkled 4-5 drops of water.
- Lastly prepare a tempering of Mustard , Urad dal, curry leaves and 1-2 slit green chilli ( optional) . Pour it on the poha and mix .
- That's it super easy Avalakki Upkari is ready to enjoy .
