Poha Recipes

Beaten Rice/Poha/Chidwa/Aval - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Green chili - 3-4
Potato - 1 medium [optional]
Peanuts - few (around 1tbs)

Coriander leaves - handful
Curry leaves - few
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tps
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tps
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbs


1. Wash beaten rice/poha in running water for a min or 2 (depending on how thick is the poha), just make sure it doesn't get so much soak or mashed. Drain all the water as possible and keep aside.

2. Slice the onion, chills, cut potato in thin slices and chop the coriander leaves.

3. In a pan heat oil, add mustard seeds (I just cumin as I don't have mustard seeds till) once splutter, add onion, green chili, curry leaves, peanuts and saute for 2 mins or until onion turns golden brown. Add potato, turmeric powder and fry until potato gets cooked. [ you can add peas, carrot, beans or any other veggie too]

4. Include salt and poha mix everything well. Cook for another 2 mins and garnish with coriander leaves.
