Preparing Poha – Recipe of Poha

Heat some oil in a swallow vessel. Splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Fry the chopped/sliced onions in the oil. When the onions turn pinkish, put the chopped potatoes and peas in it. Let the vegetables get cooked. Add green chillies and chopped coriander leaves too.

Now wash the poha in a big sieve so as to drain all the water. Put turmeric powder and salt on it and keep it aside. Thesre are different varieties of poha's available in the market. You should carefully choose one which is neither too soft nor thin and nor too hard. The wet poha will get soaked and would become soft too. You can check it by trying to press with your nail tips.

Now add the soaked poha to the vegetables. And cook it on low flame. Mix the turmeric and salt in the poha well so that the colour changes to yellow. Now add poha masala (optional) and garnish it with chopped onions and coriander leaves. Serve it hot.
