Aval Upma


1.Aval(white/red-thick version)- 1 cup

2.Green chilies.......2

3.Chopped Curry leaves n coriander leaves to garnish

4.Oil........2 tsps

5.Mustard seeds(1/ tsp),channa dhal(1 tsp),few broken cashew nuts and urad dhal(1 tsp) for seasoning.

6.Turmeric powder & asefotida a pinch

7.Salt to taste.


1.Wash aval well and remove all impurities.Soak it with 1/4 of water for 1/2 hr.

2.Heat oil in a pan,splutter mustard and all dhals-fry till golden color.

3.Now add in chopped green chilies,turmeric powder and asefotida.

4.Finally add in soaked aval,salt and chopped curry and coriander leaves.

5.Mix well and close it with a lid.Stir often(say once in every 3 minutes).Cook tis way for 10 minutes and switch off the flame.Allow tis to rest for 5 minutes and then serve it hot.

This requires no side dish at all.Beaten rice(aval) has good fibre in it,red aval is healthier than the white one.
