Posted in : SNACKS / BAKED / DEEP FRIED / STEAMED on by : Divya Suresh

Avalakki nuchhinunde is one more type of steamed dumplings, using small portion of lentil and big portion of beaten rice. It tastes best if made spicy. This recipe is very much suitable for rainy season with a hot cup of coffee / Tea. A guilt free snack recipe… & can be made for breakfast as well. These dumplings are loaded with protein, calcium and rich in fibre. Can be eaten with any chutney or without any thing also it tastes yum yum.
