Welcome to the second week of BM #15. This week I am going to post recipes that start with P thru V. So keep guessing the names while we take a peek at today's quick breakfast / snack.
This version of Poha Upma is from my mom and was my childhood favorite. Now it is my older one's favorite. Though I make this often, I realized that I hadn't posted in my space. So here it is for Day 1 of BM #15.
Thick Poha / Beaten rice 2 cups
Potatoes cubed 1 cup
Onions chopped 1/2 cup
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)
To Grind -
Roasted Peanuts 3 Tbsp
Coconut Powder 1-2 tsp (Optional)
Green Chillies 1-2 or as needed
Coriander leaves few
Method Of Preparation -
Wash the thick poha in running water and let it sit in a colander. Note that the poha should not be soaked, just washed and drained in a colander.
In a heated wok/kadai add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the dal brown and the mustard seeds pop, saute the onions until golden brown.
Add the (parboiled) cubed potatoes and saute until they are tender. [I usually par boil the potatoes in the microwave to reduce the cooking time.]
Add turmeric, the ground peanut mixture, salt and mix well.
Transfer the moist poha and mix well so the poha is evenly coated with the peanut mixture.
Remove from fire, squeeze in some lemon juice and serve hot. [My kids love it with curds/yogurt.]
