Aval (Rice flakes) Upma

Here's one quick recipe for a very naadan tasting snack which is also a popular option for breakfast in our homes. These flattened rice flakes are very filling and can be made in so many delicious variations.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Ingredients
Aval/ Rice flakes/ Poha: 2 cups
* We used thick rice flakes. Another tip is that if you make this with the Kerala special red rice flakes, it tastes even better.
Red onions (chopped): 1/3 cup
Dried red chillies: 2-3
Curry leaves: handful
Grated coconut: 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds: 1 teaspoon
Urad dal: 1 teaspoon
Oil for seasoning

Heat oil in a deep pan/kadai. Splutter the mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves. Add the chopped onions and saute. Just wash the rice flakes and immediately squeeze out the water. Add the squeezed rice flakes into the pan and saute well. Add the salt. Finally add the grated coconut and mix well. Turn off the heat in 5 mins.

Aval upma is ready to be served.
