Puli Aval

Puli aval is a type of poha upma. Generally for poha upma we wash and soak the poha or aval in just enough water if the poha is of a thick variety. Here we use thin tamarind extract instead of water to soak the poha to soften it.This upma is very similar to the gojju avalakki but here we do not use sarina pudi while soaking the poha. We use only chilli powder as a spice.

Puli aval with red aval

The theme for this week of Foodie monday bloghop was decided as “Anything but white rice”. Hence I have used aval or beaten rice but of the red variety. This red poha has got a earthy flavour and is best suited for this upma. Make this upma for breakfst or dinner, it is filling, tasty and healthy too

Veena a new recipe for me as I’ve not made upma using beaten rice. I’m waiting to get to India so I can buy red fallen rice to try it out. Awesome share for the theme.
