Habala Pethi is the Sri Lankan name for Rice Flakes. This is also known as Poha or Aval. Habala Pethi is made by pressurising or beating the parboiled rice. Therefore it looks like flattened. In Sri Lanka, I have seen Habala Pethi made out of red rice which is high with nutrients value.
Not only as Porridge (Habala Pethi Kanda), there are few other ways we can use Habala Pethi in recipes. We can use as a snack mix with coconut & juggery, in pittu etc.I will share some recipes soon.
