2 cups Thick Poha (Beaten Rice flakes)

  • 1 medium Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium Potato, boiled and diced

  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Peanuts (optional)
  • Cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Vegetable oil for cooking

  • Directions:

    1. Rinse the poha: In a colander, rinse the poha under cold running water for a few seconds. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
    2. Heat oil in a pan: Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to a pan and heat it over medium heat.
    3. Temper the pan: Once hot, add the mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the curry leaves and let them crackle for a few seconds.
    4. Sauté the onions: Add the chopped onions to the pan and fry until translucent.
    5. Add green chili and turmeric: Next, throw in the chopped green chili and turmeric powder. Sauté for another 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
    6. Incorporate the diced potatoes: Add the diced boiled potatoes to the pan and mix well with the spices.
    7. Time for the poha: Now, add the rinsed poha to the pan. Gently mix everything together, ensuring the poha gets coated with the oil and spices.
    8. Season it up: Add salt to taste and mix well. Saute for another minute or two until the poha is heated through.
    9. Garnish and serve: Turn off the heat, garnish with chopped cilantro, and serve your delicious poha hot. You can also add chopped peanuts for extra protein and crunch (optional).
