After the previous post on Avalose Podi, I received quite a few queries about what could be prepared with it. The easiest thing would be to mix it up with some sugar and eat. Another option is to mix some grated coconut with grated jaggery and mix with avalosepodi. If you need something more filling, you may add some chopped banana into it. My favourite is the Sharkkarayunda, balls which comprises of Avalosepodi, grated coconut and jaggery. These balls can be stored for a month. Mine was polished off in 2 weeks.

  6. To test, take a little of the syrup in a spoon. Touch it with your fore finger. Bring the thumb close as if pinching. Slowly pull the fingers apart. If you see a small string forming, it is good.

  10. Continue this till you achieve a soft, dough like consistency. Add the cardamom powder and mix well.
  11. To check, dust your palm with avalosepodi and take a little bit of the mixture. Make a small ball and place on a plate. if it holds shape it is good to go.
  12. Now make small balls from the dough. Roll them evenly in the avalosepodi and place in a plate of avalosepodi.
  13. You'll need to work quickly or else the mixture will harden, making rolling difficult.
  14. Once all the balls are rolled, reshape the balls.
  15. Once cool, transfer to an airtight container. Sprinkle the remaining avalosepodi in the container.
