Avalakki Bisi Bele Bhaat/ Spiced Poha Porridge

During my perusal of a few of my favorite blogs, I came across this recipe by
Sushma . I remember eating it in temples on Ekadashi. The eleventh day of a month in the Hindu calender.We are supposed to fast on the day and eat very little before retiring to bed. So most often then not, it is Upittu, Avalakki(beaten rice) or things like that. I cannot fast every month but I end up fasting on Vaikunta Ekadashi and Mahi Ekadashi, the two most auspicious of Ekadashis.
It on on such occasions that this particular recipe becomes very useful. I had to do a test run before I note it down so here it is. It turned out to be yummy and very easy as well. So here it is.

Avalakki BBB

This recipe goes out to the Easy Breezy Breakfast Event.

Hi Deesha,
Bangalore, yes sort of. Grew up in Bangalore, Mysore, Tumkur and Amritsar. Lived in Delhi for a long time! But old time Bangalore (now extinct) is what was home to me!

DEESHA said...

wow thatz a lot of places, I too like you was brought up in many places cuz of transfers, My husband too was brought up in old Bangalore - Shankarpuram. Now most of my family is settled there. Where in Bangalore are you from?

Hey Deesha,
My Paternal grandparents live in Mahalakshmi Layout that is where we also lived once upon a time,it was Bangalore outskirts,but now very much in the thick of things, my Maternal folks were in Malleshwaram for a long time, but a few years ago they shifted to Koramangala; My in-laws live in J.P.Nagar near Ragi gudda Anjaneya temple. So I sort of keep joking I went from one Anjaneya temple to another with respect to marriage! Essentially it is Malleshwaram, Rajainagar that i identify as 'my Bangalore'! Any way all my kith and kin are in Bangalore, you name the area, I have someone there. But my parents are in Maddur, my father has a obligatory 'rural' service!
