Huli Avalakki is made with beaten rice. It can be called as podi aval upma in Tamil. I learnt this recipe from one of our family friends. This is one of the most popular Karnataka recipes. I have used thick variety of beaten rice to make this recipe. It is easy to make but delicious. They taste totally different from the aval upma or the poha we usually make.
