mosaru avalakki recipe

Mosaru avalakki or curd poha recipe explained with step by step pictures. Mosaru avalakki is prepared using thick beaten rice, curd, ginger and few other spices. This is a very simple and tasty recipe.

Mosaru avalakki is a very quick and easy breakfast recipe. I would say this is a bachelor friendly or beginner friendly recipe. I have used gatti avalakki or thick beaten rice in this recipe. And if you want to use thin beaten rice, then do not soak it in the water. Also if you are using medium beaten rice, then soak it for very less time. So all I want to say is soaking time depends on the thickness of the avalakki or beaten rice.

Avalakki or beaten rice or poha is used widely through out Karnataka. We use all vareities of beaten rice and there are many recipes, which are in practice. I also have posted many avalakki or poha recipes on this website. Do have a look.

Generally this mosaru avalakki is prepared on festival days or whenever consuming rice is prohibited. Like during vrata or fasting days instead of rice beaten rice is consumed.
