Huli Avalakki/ Pulusu Atakalu/Teeka poha

Very simple and tasty tangy breakfast at our place. My sis loves this breakfast. We were in hostel and when we visit our home during weekends, she used to ask mom to make this as a special breakfast. Mom used to ask for other options where she can spend more time on cooking with more effort. But this simple recipe is effortless and simple and tasty. We used to eat the leftover poha for evening snack too. It tastes good when it is not hot:-)


  • Poha/ Avalakki/ Atakalu- 1 Large cup ( Use the thick Rice flakes)
  • Tamarind pulp- 1/4 cup
  • Jaggery- Crushed in to powder- 1tbspn
  • Green chillies- 8-10
  • Uradh dhal- 1 tspn
  • bengal gram dhal- 1 tspn
  • curry leaves- 4-5
  • mustard seeds- 1 tspn
  • jeera- 1 tspn
  • Groundnuts- 1 tbspn
  • Chopped onions- 1 small cup
  • Coriander leaves-for garnishing
  • Grated coconut- For garnishing
  • turmeric-1/4 tspn
  • Salt- to taste
  • Oil- 1.5 tbspn
  • Water- 3/4th cup

  • Soak poha/Avalakki for atleast 2 hrs in tamarind pulp and water. Add jaggery powder and stir it together and keep it aside. I usually soak poha overnight
  • Add oil in a heavy bottom pan. Add mustard seeds,jeera, hing and curry leaves. Once it splutters add uradh dhal, bengal gram dhal and groundnuts. Fry it in a slow flame as teh groundnuts may turn out brown.
  • Add chopped onions and fry for 2- 3 mins until it becomes translucent. Add salt and the soaked poha. Stir gently on a low flame.
  • Take out from the flame. Add coriander leaves and grated coconut and serve.

This is one of my favorite snack. I make it with Puffed rice or sometimes with Brown puffed rice.
