Gojju Avalakki / Huli Avalakki

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.

Servings – 2

Difficulty level – Medium


Beaten rice – 1 cup ( Thick variety )

Tamarind – Gooseberry size

Rasam powder- 2 tbsp

Salt – As required

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Jaggery- 1 tsp

Water – As req

For Seasoning

Gingelley oil – 2 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Ground nuts – 4 tbsp

Channa dhal – 1 tsp

Urad dhal – 1 tsp

Curry leaves  – few

  • In a mixie jar add beaten rice, rasam powder, turmeric powder, jaggery, salt. Grind everything into a coarse powder like semolina.
  • Boil the water and add tamarind into it. Extract tamarind juice and filter it remove the dust. Keep it aside.
  • In the tamarind juice add the ground beaten rice powder and mix well.
  • Allow it to sit for half an hour. This will help the beaten rice to absorb the tamarind juice that we have added. The beaten rice will become soft.


  • In a kadai, add oil and splutter the mustard seeds. Once they crack, add channa dhal, urad dhal, groundnuts and fry till golden brown.
  • Then add curry leaves and saute for a minute.
  • Finally add the beaten rice mixture and mix it well with the seasoning.

  • Keep it in sim for five minutes and turn off the stove.
  • Serve it with banana slices/ pickle.
