Atukula Payasam, traditional Indian recipe which tastes divine and easy to prepare. Atukulu in telugu is also known as avalakki in Kannada, aval in Tamil, poha in Hindi and flattened rice in english. We can get 2 varietes of flattened rice (thick and thin). We use thick poha to prepare this payasam. Poha is Lord Krishna's favorite. My Amma daily offers avalakki and sakkiri (poha + sugar) as Prasadam in daily Pooja. It is very easy to prepare n 20 minutes.
