Vegetable Poha

sonym's picture
Poha (Flaked Rice) is the most common breakfast of the North Indian community. It is light on the digestive system and yet filling! Adding vegetables to it makes it even more healthier and tastier. Its really easy to cook and tates delicious. It is a quick meal and can be had either for breakfast or a quick snack. It takes very little preparation time and i am sure this recipe can never fail you !! Believe me.
Ingredients
  Thick poha 1 Cup (16 tbs) (flaked rice)
  Chopped vegetables 1 Cup (16 tbs) (capsicum (bell pepper), carrot, potato, some greenpeas, whole, tomato)
  Chopped onion 1 Medium
  Chopped green chilies 4 Medium
  Curry leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice/1 spoon lime juice 1⁄2 Medium
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
Directions

Method:
Wash one cup poha in cold water and drain. Leave the poha aside for 10 minutes and let them puff. After 10 minutes add into the poha 2 tea spoons sugar, 1 spoon lime juice, and ½ tea spoon salt and mix well. Keep aside.

Preparation:
Take a deep pan and add 2 table spoons oil, when the oil heats, add a few mustard seeds, cumin seeds and allow them to pop. Then, add a pinch of hing (asafoetida powder). To this, add the curry leaves, the chopped green chilles, chopped onion and peanuts/cashewnuts. Stir them well for a minute and then add the finely chopped vegetables to it. (I recommend you use a vegetable chopper as the vegetables get very finely chopped in it and cook faster.)Then, add ¼ teaspoon of turmeric power and very little salt (just enough for the vegetables…we already have salt in the poha mix). After 5 minutes of occasional stiring, (u can splash to it very little water to avoid the vegetables gettting burnt) add the poha mix and stir well. Let it cook on a low flame for 5 minutes. Do not cover it with a lid. The poha is now ready. Before serving, garnish it with chopped onions, chopped cilantro and sev (optional). Relish while hot!!!
