Potato Poha For Lunch

Written By Srimathi Mani on Monday, April 22, 2013 | 3:45 PM

With the weekend breezing by I was not prepared for Monday morning. This morning I was trying to pack lunch boxes for my family and had very little time to do so. Opening my pantry, I was looking at ingredients to make something. I decided that if I cannot find anything interesting I will resort to upma. Then I found the bottle of avil (poha) and I was convinced that I could make something quick. Its very straight forward recipe and I don't think you can go wrong with the taste. All you have to aim at is a sweet, tangy, spicy and salty taste all mixed together. It gets done is 10 minutes and its with ingredients from your pantry. 


Gadgets:

Cutting Board
Knife
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Frying Pan
Colander 

Ingredients:

Thick Avil / Poha - 2 cups
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida Powder - 1/4 tsp
Green Chillies - 1 sliced
Red Dry Chillies - 1
Boiled Potato - 1 chopped into small cubes
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
Cilantro - 2 tbsp minced
Curry Leaves - a few leaves
Peanuts - 1/2 cup
Cashew Nut - 10 pieces
Salt
Sugar - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp


Preparation:

1. Add avil / poha into the colander and give it a good rinse and allow it to drain. 

2. Add ghee and oil into a frying pan. Add asafetida, mustard seeds, green chillies and curry leaves. Allow for the mustard to pop and add peanuts and roast it. Add cashew nuts and give it a mix. 

3. Add onions, and cook with a little salt until well done. Then add the boiled potatoes and allow it to mix well and roast a little. Add turmeric powder and mix well. 

4. Add the poha / avil and mix well. Add a dash of lemon juice, sugar, more salt (if required). Mix well and garnish with cilantro and serve it hot.
