Avalakki upittu/Aval upma/Flattened Rice Upma (Karnataka special)

avalakki upittu

Avalakki Upittu is a healthy and easy to prepare break fast recipe for Busy mornings.
In Kannada, Flattened rice means Avalakki and upma means upittu. I tasted this upittu in my Friends house and it was similar to Arisi upma but was unable to find which main Ingredient  she has used. When I asked her about the recipe, I was surprised to know that it was made out of Avalakki/Aval. I got the recipe immediately and tried at home. 

  • 1 cup Avalakki/Flattened Rice (Thick variety)
  • 2 tbsp Grated Coconut
  • As per taste Salt
For Grinding:
  • 2 tbsp Moong dal/Hesaru bele
  • 2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
For Seasoning:
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • A pinch Hing
  • 2 Red chillies
  • A spring Curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp Oil
