Tips for Cooking

  • The Avalakki must be drained well before adding to the mixture. You can use a strainer and press lightly to rid the excess moisture.
  • You can add other vegetables like carrot, beans or capsicum to it, but ensure it is diced very fine or the cutlets will break while shaping.
  • You can prepare these in advance and freeze them in a single layer. Once thoroughly frozen, you can store them in ziplock bags and fry whenever you’d like!
