Dear Shantha and friends, I was hoping to find the recipe for Kuttavalakki which I have enjoyed as a child thanks to family and friends visiting from Shimoga. I wanted to try and re-create it as a snack and also a ready mix for an instant meal. It was basically pounded avalakki, liberally seasoned and garnished with mustard, karibevu, hurigadale, kadalekai beeja, grated copra, salt to taste, pounded tamarind, jaggery, red chillies and hingu. I was wondering if I could not make a more filling meal of it by adding hot water and keeping it covered for a few minutes.… Read more »
Hi Bhagi Atma,
Thanks for visiting the website. I think Kuttavalakki is same as Huli avalakki, please access the following link for the recipe:
Just take thick avalakki and grind it coarsely, pack this separately. The seasoning, coconut, salt, jaggery, tamarind powder and saarina pudi can be mixed together and carried separately. Soak the avalakki in water for few minutes (2 – 3mts). Drain and add the seasoning and mix well. Relish with curds and crispies. Hope this helps…
Is the same as uggarni?
