Avalos Podi (Kerala Teatime Snack)

Avalos Podi (Kerala Teatime Snack)

I am back after a long hiatus.  Avalos Podi is a simple yet popular teatime snack from Kerala. It is made by roasting rice flour and grated coconut. ‘Podi’ stands for Powder in Malayalam. So Avalos Podi is nothing but powdered rice flour and coconut. My husband is fond of Avalos Podi and he can have it any time of the day. Avalos Podi, if prepared properly has a long shelf life. It can be kept for a minimum of 3 months in airtight containers.

Avalos is usually eaten along with ripe bananas and sugar, similar to Rava Uppumavu. You can also use honey instead of sugar.


  • You can also use Frozen Shredded Coconut for making Avalos. Defrost the coconut and measure around 8 cups of shredded coconut.
  • If you don’t like lumps in your Avalos Podi, you can powder it in a grinder.
