Tips for Cooking

  • Ensure that the avalakki is just wet and not soaked. If soaked or dripping, it will lead to a soggy final dish.
  • You can add peanuts and even roasted chana dal if you prefer.
  • Instead of stirring once the avalakki is added, a tossing motion is more effective at mixing and it will ensure that the avalakki does not stick together.
