Hi! First time here, Liked the ridge gourd curry and the avalakki uppitu, I also make somewhat similar when I want to make it the Kannadiga way but I always prefer the Indori version, which I have posted in my blog.

Hi! I have a doubt in Avalakki thari uppittu. You have merged recipe of both Gogguavalakki & avalakki uppittu. When sambar powder, Jaggery & tamarind is mixed with avalakki tari, we should not mix onion or any other vegetables. We should just give vagarrane with peanuts & garnish with dry coconut.

@ Anupama,

I have not merged the recipe of Gojjavalakki and Avalakki Uppittu.
For Gojjavalakki (Huli Avalakki) we prepare fresh ground masala and we don't use Sambar powder. Even we don't add onion and any other vegetables in Gojjavalakki. We just mix the Avalakki with the ground masala and give the seasoning. I will post the recipe of Gojjavalakki soon.

Also there is no written rule saying we can't use onion or any other vegetables when we add sambar powder!

Really the Uppittu was good . We made a slight change in the process. We made the mixture of rasam powder ,tamarind,jaggery, termeric powder to boil for 1 or 2 mts and then added the Aval. Thanks for the recipe
