Aval upma is a simple and versatile dish made with white or red rice flakes(beaten rice), onions, chillies and fried peanuts.
1) First of all, never soak aval/rice flakes for longer time because they become too soft and soggy.
2) Furthermore, green chillies suit best for this Aval upma.
3) If using fried peanuts, add them at last and mix.
4) For richer version add cashew nuts.
