Generally in Kannadigas prefer to have some snacks with their tea……. Preferably varieties of Poha (Avalakki in Kannada). Gojju avalakki is one of them. We can say it's a traditional snack of Karnataka. It is also called as 'Huli avalakki'. In short you can say it's grinde poha in tamarind sauce. One of my Aunty, in Bangalore taught me to make this easy Avalakki …… Poha.


Thick Poha - 2 cups
Sarin Pudi - 3 tablespoonss
Tamarind pulp- 3 tablespoons
Jaggery- 1/2 cup
Fresh coconut grated- 4 tablespoon
groundnuts - 2-3 tablespoons
Oil - 2 tablespoon
mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
curry leaves - 7-8
Dry red chillies - 4-5
chana dal( bengal gram) - 1 teaspoon
urad dal ( black gram ) - 1 teaspoon
Haldi powder - 1/2 teaspoon.
Hing (Asafetida) - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste


Grind the thick poha coarsely in a mixer. Wash it and keep aside for 5-10 minutes. Take tamarind pulp add 2 cup of water, sarin pudi, jaggery and salt. Keep aside for half an hour so that poha will absorbs the tamarind mixture. Heat oil in a large kadai and make a tadaka of mustard seeds, curry leaves, dry red chillies, chana dal, urad dal, haldi powder and hing. Add groundnuts into it and fry it for a minute. Now add soaked poha and coconut and mix it properly. Cover it and cook it for a minute. Garnish with coriander and serve hot avalakki with Tea.
