Updated Chatni Pudi Avalakki – ಚಟ್ನಿ ಪುಡಿ ಅವಲಕ್ಕಿ

Who doesn’t know chatni pudi avalakki – ಚಟ್ನಿ  ಪುಡಿ  ಅವಲಕ್ಕಿ, right? It’s so simple and easy to make; it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. I think this is the most simple and easy to make dish in our Indian cuisine.

When we were kids, my mom used to make this for evening snack. It tastes so yummy. This is a snack you can eat on days you are fasting also. Enjoy 🙂

    Great site you have here! I was looking for hachida avalakki and stumbled upon your site. Could you post a recipe for how to make chatni pudi, please? I think I know the basics, but some instruction from someone who has done it in the USA will be great! 🙂 I was raised in Hyderabad by parents who are stroong believers and followers of the Madhwa tradition. I now live in the US in Indiana.
