Avalose Podi (Roasted Rice Powder) and Avalose Unda (Roasted Rice Balls), originates from the state of Kerala (South India). Its a traditional and popular evening snack of “God Own Country” and one of my favorite among snacks.
Most of the Kerala snacks recipes ask for rice flour and coconut base..This is one among them. This is a combination of roasted raw rice flour, grated coconut and cumin seeds.
This snack is usually eaten along with sugar or honey. It pairs well with cup of steaming tea or coffee. Avolose Podi (Roasted Rice Powder) can be easily transformed into Avalose unda (Roasted Rice Balls). Traditionally, avalose unda is made with jaggery syrup mixed in and rolled into balls.
