celebrate the festival.Its been like so many ages i didn't eat this.Yesterday i was fasting and Gp was me to prepare something light on stomach but tasty to eat. I dint wanted to cook anything using onion or garlic so i decided to prepare gojju avalakki quickly i called up my mom  and took recipe from her and prepared.After performing pooja i had this gojju avalakki and it totally reminded me my childhood days.It makes me feel so good to go back to those good old days.Very simple recipe with basic ingredients.
