avalakki upkari recipe

Today I have for you all a super easy breakfast/snack recipe made from thin poha that can be prepared in a jiffy when we are in a hurry / no mood to cook / when we have unexpected guests. Yes this Udupi – Mangalore style Avalakki Upkari takes hardly 10 mins to make. Bajil Avalakki coupled with upma is one of the most common dishes in marriage &  other functions. In north Karnataka, it’s known as Hachida avalakki . Typically in Udupi Mangalore region, onion is not added to the avalakki upkari. But I make it sometimes adding onion for extra crunch and taste. Do give a try and let me know how you like it.

Actually, this is a no measurement dish .. ie you can add spice, coconut, sweet etc as per your pref. But still, I have mentioned so that you get taste close to the authentic version when you try the first time. You can alter later on based on your taste. Here you go …

Points to note while making Avlakki Upkari :

  • you can check recipe for rasam powder here
  • Use coconut oil for tempering to get the authentic taste.
  •  In Udupi – Mangalore region , it’s made little sweetish with no onion . You can alter as per your pref. I add onion sometimes only. Both with or without it tastes good.
  • Always use thin poha only and don’t skip coconut.
  • If you want you can add few groundnut while tempering.

  • 1 -2 tsp Rasam powder

to Temper

  • 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 .
