Avarekalu Mixture Recipe – Hyacinth/Field Beans Snacks - Avarekalu Recipes

Avarekalu mixture
Avarekalu season is started in Bangalore. Every year I never forget to try some interesting avarekalu recipes during this season. My School moms friends are the biggest inspiration & source for my Karnataka recipes. This year they suggested me to try Avarekalu uppittu & avarekalu mixture recipe. Avarekalu mixture is an yummy South Indian mixture recipe prepared with the combination of deep fried avarekalu(Hyacinth beans / Flat beans/ Indian lilva beans in English, Mochakottai in Tamil, Surti papdi in Hindi), poha, peanuts, nuts and raisins. One can find it easily in most of the snacks and savory shops in Bangalore at this time. In many places, people make this mixture only with avarekalu. But I like to add all the other ingredients to yield more quantity and taste. Hitikida avarekalu (Skinless beans) works well for this mixture recipe. It was so good and crunchy to taste. I am sure kids and adults would love to munch it during tea time. It would be ideal for their snacks box as well. Even though its high in calories, its a very tasty indulgence. You can also make this mixture with dry avarekalu/ dried beans by soaking overnight in water. Do try this yummy mixture recipe in this avarekalu season. You will love it. Ok, lets see how to make Avarekalu mixture recipe with step by step pictures.

Cuisine: South Indian
Category: Snacks
Serves: Serves 4
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 15 Minutes
Total time: 20 Minutes


INGREDIENTS
1 cup - 250ml
  • Hitikida Avarekalu / Skin less Field beans / Hyacinth beans / Pachai mochai kottai - 1 cup
  • Thick poha - 1/2 cup ( Use 1/4 cup for less poha)
  • Peanuts – 2.5 tbsp
  • Fried gram dal - 1 tbsp
  • Cashew nuts - 5 nos (Break into two)
  • Dry grapes/ Raisins - Few (Optional)
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Cooking oil – to deep fry
  • Salt - as needed
  • Sugar – 1/4 tsp (optional)
  • Dry coconut pieces – Few (Optional, I din’t use it)
  • Hing / asafetida – A big pinch
HOW TO MAKE AVAREKALU MIXTURE
  1. Wash and soak avarekalu in water overnight or for 6 hours.
  2. Peel the skin and keep it ready.
  3. Spread them in a cloth. Pat it dry.
  4. Heat oil and deep fry avarekalu in batches. Cook till bubbles cease.
  5. Remove them in a paper towel. Deep fry poha, peanuts, cashews, dry grapes and fried gram dal one by one and add to fried avarekalu.
  6. Add salt, red chilli powder and hing. Mix well.

METHOD - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
  • Wash and soak avarekalu in water overnight or for 4 to 6 hours. Peel the skin by pressing the avarekalu between your thumb finger and pointer finger. Skin comes off easily. Collect them in a bowl. You can also split them into two halves if you like. Refer the picture below.
    Avarekalu mixture
  • Spread the peeled avarekalu in a cotton cloth and pat it dry to remove its moisture completely. Make sure its dry. Do not rest the avarekalu in the cloth for long time. It will become hard to eat after frying. So its enough if you just pat it dry nicely.
  • Heat oil in a kadai to deep fry. Fry avarekalu in 3 batches. When you put the avarekalu in oil, it settles down in the bottom of oil with lots of bubbles. Once its cooked and becomes crispy, it will float on the top of oil without bubbles. You can remove them at this stage. Cook in medium high flame and keep tossing gently till its crispy else the entire mixture will become soggy the next day. So please be patient while frying avarekalu. Each batch takes nearly 5 minutes but its color won’t change.
    Avarekalu mixture
  • Drain the oil and Remove the avarekalu in a tissue paper. Now deep fry poha till crispy and add to fried avarekalu. Then deep fry peanuts, cashews till golden and remove them.

  • Store in an air tight box after it comes to room temperature. Enjoy up to a week!

Note

  • For variations, you can roast Kellogg's corn flakes in 2tsp oil and add to the mixture instead of poha.
  • Frying the avarekalu properly is the key to make perfect crispy mixture.
  • If you rest the avarekalu in the cloth for long time, it loses all the moisture and becomes very dry. So it will taste hard once you deep fry. So it is enough if you just pat it dry.
  • Adjust the quantity of chilli powder as per taste.
  • For variations, you can also add 2 pinches of chat masala powder and black salt.
Try this easy, yummy, crispy Avarekalu Mixture and enjoy with tea/coffee !

    Birthday Party Recipes Menu Ideas – Indian Party Food Items List

    List of Indian food ideas for kids birthday party recipes menu at home / vegetarian food items list for birthday party dinner & Lunch – Organizing Children’s birthday party is really a challenging task for parents. Some people love to conduct an elaborate dinner or lunch party and some prefer to make a simple tea party by just providing cake and snacks based on their budget. Most of the people wish to keep the party in the evening or in the afternoon if its a weekend. Since its a kids party, many people stick to vegetarian menu if they have a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian guests. Be it a simple snacks party or an elaborate dinner/lunch party, choosing the cake, planning the menu, decoration of home/ party hall and arrangements would be tough for many especially beginners.

    Indian Birthday party menu list 
    So I have tried my best to help you choose the party menu. Birthday party food items should be attractive, kids friendly and healthy at least to some extentHappy . Not just for kids, menu should be appealing to adults as well. Long back I had shared a simple kids birthday party menu idea after getting inspired from one of my friend’s party. After I made that post, I too got the confidence and started conducting simple birthday party at home for Raksha’s birthday. I got many mails from my readers to post more related to this topic. So today I have come up with the list of kids friendly, birthday party menu items list for Indian kids to help parents like me. I have also linked the recipes for reference. Its purely a vegetarian menu but you can find both South Indian & North Indian recipes.

    Non-vegetarians, please excuse me. You can get some ideas from this list and make fries, gravies, biryani with chicken, mutton and egg. I took the help of my friend Shalini to frame this list. As we live in apartments, we have the chance of attending many parties. Shalini is in US now. Being in abroad, her friends conduct some potluck, get together and parties during weekends to meet people and build relationships. So she could help me well with her own ideas. I have also got some menu ideas from my school moms friends. With the help of this list, you can decide the party menu based on your budget. You can cook the food on your own or buy from outside/ restaurants.You can also opt to make Jain food without using onion and garlic.
    All these pictures shared in this post are the ones I collected for yearsHappy. The picture given below is the simple decoration I made at home for Raksha’s birthday party.

    Birthday party decoration ideas

    I have categorized this list as Starters/Appetizers, Main course, Dessert, Drinks & Beverages that are suitable and loved by kids from 3 to 10 years. Basically kids love to have foods based on tomato, paneer, sweet corn, cauliflower, baby corn, bread, cheese and fruits. So I have given most of the dishes using these ingredients. These recipes would be surely a winner among the kids. Friends, do make your own permutations and combinations according to your kids preferences and frame the party menu. Hope you all find this list useful. Do leave a few words in the comment section and help me with your suggestions for more recipes and a few words of appreciation to motivate me if you find this post helpful Happy. Ok, lets move on to the list of birthday party menu ideas ! Friends, do help me by sharing your thoughts and more recipes to include in this list.


    Birthday party menu

    In the above picture, you can find a sample of simple snacks party and the lunch party menu. If you are inviting kids without parents, you can give a simple party by giving a drink, starter/snacks, cake and a dessert. Finger foods is the best option for kids below 10 years. Skip the main course. To make it even more simple, you can just finish it with cake & samosa or veg puffs.  If you are inviting adults/parents, then you can go for wider options. Birthday party should be more of fun, hassle free and memorable. So you can arrange for small games, magic shows, music, dance to make the party more interesting Happy.

    Do refer my Simple birthday menu post to get some ideas on how to conduct the party & gifting for kids. I have also shared a sample menu at the end of this post to get some idea.

    Drinks/ Beverages/Welcome Drinks

    Starter/Appetizer/ Snacks

    Main course

    Salad

    • Sweet corn salad
    • Mixed Fruit salad
    • Kosambari
    • Vegetables with dip/ hummus
    • Fruits on skewers

    Dessert

    Sample menu for simple birthday party

    • Orange juice
    • A slice of Birthday cake
    • Mini samosa with ketchup or Veg puffs or cashew pakoda
    • Gulab Jamun

    Sample menu for Dinner or Lunch party buffet

    • Any aerated drink or Fruit punch for welcome drink
    • Tomato soup/Sweet corn soup
    • French fries or aloo tikki or kabab with tomato sauce/green chutney
    • Gobi manchurian
    • Roti / Naan / Kulcha
    • Paneer butter masala or Mixed veg gravy
    • Dal tadka
    • Dum aloo or baby potato gravy
    • Veg Dum Biryani with raita
    • Plain rice, rasam, fryums
    • Curd and pickle
    • Gulab jamun
    • Carrot halwa
    • Ice cream
    • Fruit salad
    • Paan/ Beeda

    POINTS TO NOTE

    • Pastries are better than the cream cakes. So choose the cake accordingly.
    • Make less spicy food as you are cooking for kids. Parents will adjust/ compensate about the taste.
    • Kids prefer deep fried foods for starters. Gobi 65 or manchurian is the best choice.
    • They love the food more if its cheese, paneer and potato based.
    • Kids love to have poori more than roti.
    • Most of the kids love paneer butter masala and potato, peas kurma more than mixed vegetable kurma.
    • Always keep some plain rice, dal and rasam to tackle fussy kids.
    • If you arrange for dinner party, make some idli too.
    • Its always better to avoid aerated drinks like pepsi, 7up etc. You can give some fruit juices instead. No problem even if its store bought.
    • Gulab jamun would be the best dessert for Kids. No kid would say NO.
    • Ice cream is also a must for kids Happy.
    • Keep some hot water ready. Many kids are allergic to cold stuffs like ice cream , chocolate and cakes. So you can tell the parents to give them hot water immediately after they eat ice cream/chocolates to prevent from cold, fever. I am sure this tip works.
    • Finally, do not force your kids to eat everything in the plate. Most of the kids love to eat the cake, starter and dessert. Do not worry about it. Parents can feed them later at their house if needed.
    Hope this list helps you to decide the menu quickly. Thanks for visiting this page !

    Elai Vadam Recipe – Ilai Vadam – Easy Rice Appalam In Banana Leaf

    Elai vadam
    Elai Vadam – Rice papad made in banana leaf ( Vazhai ilai) was in my try list for the past few years. Whenever my fellow bloggers post this elai vadam recipe, I get tempted to try but I never got the confidence to try on my own. Recently my MIL prepared this ilai vadam using idli rice after watching Revathy Shanmugam mam’s cookery show in Jaya TV. Last week when she came to Bangalore, she brought some vadam to taste. She said its a time consuming process but the end result is worthy.Its taste reminded Delhi appalam we get in exhibition.We had this rice papad sprinkled with red chilli powder and we loved it very muchWinking.  My MIL told me the tradition behind this appalam making process.On those days, people in Tamilnadu villages used to make this rice vadam using Vadham ilai or Poovarasan ilai. This vadam is usually given for ladies after delivery ( Postpartum diet) as urad dal papad creates gas problem.This vadam is roasted in direct fire ( Sutta appalam) instead of deep frying in oil as deep frying makes it difficult to digest.The best thing about this vadam is it dries up quickly even under the shade. It takes one to two days to get ready based on the weather in your place.Overnight drying under the fan would be enough. I felt this vadam is ideal for places where there is lack of sunlight. With the help of my MIL, I prepared this easy arisi appalam in Bangalore using raw rice. This vadam can be prepared with raw rice, idli rice or both in equal quantity. If you make it with raw rice, vadam comes out super light, airy and crispy whereas vadam made with idli rice comes out crunchy and very flavorful like store bought arisi appalam but slightly dense in texture.In that case, you can add little sago( javvarisi) to bring the light texture. As I have thatte idli stand, this vadam process was completed within one hour. If you don’t have this plate it may take more time. You can buy thatte idli stand or elai vadam stand in the market if you are really interested to try this one. Now lets see how to make elai vadam recipe with step by step pictures and VIDEO !

    Elai vadam recipe- Ilai vadam - Easy rice appalam in banana leaf


    Elai vadam recipe- Ilai vadam - Easy rice appalam in banana leaf How to make elai vadam - Easy rice appalam n banana leaf - Summer special recipes
    Cuisine: South Indian
    Category: Snacks
    Serves: 24 nos
    Prep time: 120 Minutes
    Cook time: 60 Minutes
    Total time: 180 Minutes


    INGREDIENTS
    1 cup - 250ml
    • Raw rice - 1 cup ( I used Maavu arisi/dosa rice, Good quality raw rice is also fine)
    • Salt - as needed
    • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
    • Water - As needed (I used 1/2 cup for grinding, 3/4 cup for mixing)
    METHOD

    • Wash and soak the raw rice in enough water for 2 hours. Drain the excess soaked water completely and grind the rice coarsely without adding water. Then wipe the sides and add 1/2 cup water, required salt. Grind to smooth paste like maida. Please note there should not be any grits in the batter. It should be completely smooth. So grind patiently for long time. I used my Indian mixie for grinding the batter and it took 5 minutes. Grind in two batches.
      Elai vadam
      Elai vadam
    • Remove the batter in a bowl.Add cumin seeds. The consistency of batter should be slightly thinner than dosa batter.
    • Now take a banana leaf and spread the leaf inside the plate according to its shape.Add 1/2 ladle of batter and swirl the plate. Batter spreads all over the plate. If you don’t have banana leaf, just spread the batter directly in the plate & swirl/rotate it.It also works but its difficult to peel once its cooked. If you have 3 plate or 6 plate ilai vadam stand, follow the same and spread the batter in all the plates.
      Elai vadam
      Elai vadam
    • Heat water in an idli pot. When the water comes to roll boil, place the idli plate.Let it steam for 5 minutes. The color of batter changes to pale white & transparent after cooking. Remove the leaf from the plate and let it become warm. Peel the cooked vadam and spread in a cotton cloth( Dhoti) or in a polythene sheet. Do not put in newspaper. It will stick with it.
       Elai vadam
      Elai vadam
    • Let it dry in balcony or under the sun for one day. If you don’t have this option, dry it under the fan wind. When it dries up, it shrinks in size & changes in color slightly.
      After one day drying, it would have dried up to 75%. During night, keep it under the fan. If its crispy all over, its ready. If its soft in the middle, it needs more time to dry. So the next day, keep it under the sun & repeat the same till its completely moisture free. Store it in a box & use it for months. Stays good even for an year if prepared properly.
      Elai vadam
    • Heat required oil in a kadai to deep fry. Break the vadam into half & deep fry in oil. Flip & cook both the sides. Remove & drain in a tissue. Sprinkle red chilli powder on top & serve as an evening snack or with any variety rice !
      Elai vadam
    Enjoy !

    Note
    • The consistency of batter is very important. Do not make it too watery or thick.
    • You can make this vadam with idli rice instead of raw rice.
    • Steaming takes maximum 5 minutes.
    • Try to peel the vadam after its cooled down.
    ilai vadam
    Enjoy this crispy, yummy arisi appalam with rice or as an evening snack !
