Akki Tari Uppittu brings back the hidden memories. We two sisters used to fight with amma to prepare our favourite food for breakfast. I like uppittu the most even from those days and my sis likes Avalakki. Most of the time I used to get what I want and give a big smile at my sister for winning. She is ok, ok with what ever it is because she too liked the uppittu that amma made. What ever you say, the big cup of coffee and Hot spicy uppittu goes hand in hand. Eating 1 gulp of uppittu and sip a drop of coffee mast mast maja / Great fun.
After a long time I am preparing this Akki Tari Uppittu. This Akki Tari was brought to prepare some quick Avalakki mosaru /curd idli. Then the left rava is just lying in the kitchen shelf. So wanted to prepare this Akki Tari Uppittu because one of our friend in face book reminded about Akki tari uppittu and its yummy taste.
