Mosaru Avalakki

A must have dish, mosaru avalakki for Shri Krishna Janmashtami along with some some fresh butter churned up for ‘muddu’ (beloved) Shri Krishna. Fun snacks offered are such as kodubale, benne muruku, chakli, kobbri mithai, 7 Cups barfi, kalakand. But the most simple and humble dish required on the day is ‘mosaru avalakki’ or dahi poha.
You can choose to add some simple tadka/vaggarne ingredients to make it extra tasty. But in general you can even it keep it plain and quickly mix this up. After eating oily snacks a few spoonfuls of this mosaru avalakki is indeed cooling. So as I mentioned, ignore ‘For Tadka’ ingredients mentioned in the recipe and just follow the simple steps to mix poha with curd.

It’s best to choose thin variety(not paper) of avalakki/poha/flattened rice for this so it absorbs the right amount of moisture to become soft. Medium variety can also be used but will require more time and curd to make it soft. Try more poha recipes from FOI, avalakki bisi bele bhaat being a favourite.
