Green Poha

A nutritious breakfast taken early in the morning holds you in good stead throughout the day. I  was getting late in the morning, and there was absolutely no time to make any lavish breakfast, and with minimum ingredients at home. Green poha which is very simple, flavorful and highly nutritious!!  The rice flakes are seasoned with mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida. Addition of coriander paste give nice flavor. I found this recipe from Dee's Kitchen. Thanks Deeksha for this lovely recipe. 

Ingredients :

Rice Flakes (Poha) : 1 1/2 cup
Onion : 1, medium, chopped
Potato : 1, medium, chopped
Carrot : 1, medium, chopped
Fried Peanuts : 1/2 cup
Green Chillies : 2, chopped
Mustard seeds : 1/4 tsp.
Cumin seeds : 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing : a pinch
Red chillies : 1 or 2
Sugar : 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste

To grind ~

Coriander leaves : 1 cup
Green chillies : 1 (as per requirement)
Curry leaves : 4-5
Lime Juice : 1 tbsp.

Method :

Place the poha in a sieve and hold it under running water for a few seconds. Toss well to drain out all excess water and keep aside. 

Grind coriander leaves, green chillies, curry leaves and lime juice in a grinder to make green paste.

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds, when the seeds crackle, add the curry leaves and green chillies and stir for 1 minute.

Add the onions and sauté till the onions turn golden brown.

Then add the potato, carrot, salt and a little water. Cover and heat on medium flame till the vegetables are cooked.

When the potatoes and onions are cooked add the green paste, saute for a couple of minutes.

Now add the poha, fried peanuts, sugar and a little more salt and mix well, cook for 2-3 mins. Switch off the gas.

Serve hot with some extra drop of lemon juice if needed.
