Healthy Red Rice avalakki, poha Bisibelebath
A peasant dish. It is also a one pot meal with tons of nutrition. It is a very famous dish in the southern parts of India. It is usually made with rice, but I took it up another notch to make it more healthy by adding puffed Red Rice.
A good quantity meal that can feed a lot of people or you can eat it all day long & still have leftovers.
You can follow this method & add cooked rice or just puffed rice, you can add any veggies of you choice. It is a very healthy dish that you should try sometime.
