Aval /Beatan Rice / Rice Flakes Upma

              Aval , it is the malayalam word for Beaten Rice or Rice Flakes. We commonly use Red/Brown Aval in Kerala. Aval Unda, Aval Dosa, Aval Velayichathu (Sweetened Rice Flakes)and Aval Nanachathu are the common dish we make using rice flakes. In north India, they usually use a different variety of this, called "Poha".
I don't know whether this Aval Upma is commonly made, but this is a usual breakfast dish in my house, and is served with shallow fried ripe plantain in ghee.This is my son Sampath's favourite...
So here's is the recipe for Aval Upma....

  1. Aval (Bwown Rice Flakes)- 2 cup
  2. Onion sliced - 1 Big
  3. Grated coconut - 3/4 cup
  4. Green Chilly - 5-6
  5. Ginger - 1" piece
  6. Curry Leaves - 2 Sprigs
  7. Oil - 2 Tbsp
  8. Ghee - 1/2 Tsp
  9. Mustard Seeds - 1/2 Tsp
  10. Dry Red Chilly - 2
  11. Curry Leaves - 1 Sprig
  12. Water - 1 cup

  • Dust aval if any powdered remains are there.
  • In a bowl , mix Aval,grated coconut, onion, green chilly, ginger chopped, curry leaves and salt . Mix nicely with your hand by adding water and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • In a kadai, heat oil & ghee, splutter mustard seeds,add curry leaves and dry red chilly.
  • Add the mixed aval to it.Mix well. Close the lid and cook for 10 minutes on low flame.
  • Keep stirring in between, so that it cooks evenly.
  • Serve hot with shallow fried ripe plantain.

  • Do not add too much of water, as aval will become mushy. Then it won't be Aval Upma.
