Tips :

There is no need to keep on flame after mixing all. Final Gojju Avalakki should be in powdered form, if you want you can make the tamarind pulp little watery to avoid powdered form. You can adjust the taste as per your requirement before mixing avalakki. After that you cannot add anything for taste.
