furthermore, some easy tips, recommendations and serving ideas for gojju avalakki recipe. firstly, i personally recommend using thick poha of this recipe instead of thin and medium kind. thin poha typically has less strength and perhaps dissolve while soaking in water. secondly, the poha should be coarsely grounded and should not be powder. you can use mixer grinder for the same and ground it roughly for 5-10 secs. lastly, i personally like the combination of taste and hence i have added tamarind, jaggery and spice powder for the sweet, tangy and spicy taste. however, if you do not like the sweetness in your gojjavalakki, you can totally skip it or adjust as per your taste.
