One afternoon i was feeling very hungry and wanted to prepare a dish very quickly and tasty too, then i thought of Aval ( Rice flakes). Just came out excellent. If you are in rush, you can prepare this.

Rice Flakes tossed with traditional tempering of mustard seeds, chillies and curry leaves and served with lemon wedges. With lemon wedges it tasted awesome.
