Aloo Poha

 

pohe

There are days when simple breakfast sets mood for the day. For me,this is one such breakfast. I love poha, the traditional Maharashtrian breakfast. Simple, nutritious and filling. It makes a nice evening snack too. Doesn’t take much time to put together. There are many versions of making this , the most famous being “Kande Pohe”. These days people make with adding veggies too.

Today I am sharing the no onion no garlic version of this versatile dish. I make this often when I am in no mood to chop onions :P. The potatoes fried gives a nice bite to Poha along side peanuts. πŸ™‚

Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients:

Serves: 2

Thick rice flakes (Pohe) : 2 cups

Onions finely chopped : 2

Potato finely chopped: 1 (optional)

Curry leaves: a spring

Oil: 2 tbsp.

Peanuts: 1 tbsp.

Mustard Seeds: 1 tsp

Green chili: 2 finely chopped

Lemon juice: of 1 lemon

For garnish:

Coriander leaves: finely chopped: 2 tbsp.

Grated Coconut: 1 tbsp.

Nylon sev: for garnish (optional)

Method:

Wash the poha and discard the water.

Heat a pan, add oil when hot add peanuts. Fry till golden brown.

Add the mustard seeds, when they crackle, add green chilies, curry leaves and potatoes. Fry till potatoes brown on the edges and are crunchy.

Add turmeric powder, salt and some of the lemon juice.

Cook on a low flame till the potatoes soften. Add the rice flakes at this stage, add salt, sugar and mix nicely.

Add the remaining lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves, coconut shavings.

When serving, in a plate add the poha, garnish with sev and serve hot.

Serve with coriander chutney or just plain like i did. It tastes yum both ways. πŸ™‚

As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. πŸ™‚ Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
