Avalakki Oggarane/ Avalakki Uppittu (Seasoned Poha)

           

Here is one of the simplest and quickest breakfast dish that I have come across. This one gets done in less than 15minutes! It tastes great with a hot cuppa and hence makes for a wonderful tea time snack.

Ingredients:

1 cup Thick Poha/Flat Rice

1/2 cup finely chopped Onions

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp Mustard seeds

1 tsp Cumin seeds

1/2 tsp Turmeric/Haldi (optional)

1 strand Curry leaves

1 tbsp Chana+Urad Dal mixture

1 tsp Peanuts/Cashews (optional)

1 Green Chili, chopped finely

1/2 tsp Sugar

1 tsp Lime juice

1tbsp grated coconut, fresh/frozen

1 tbsp finely chopped Cilantro (optional)

Salt as per taste

Method:

  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan; Temper with mustard seeds, green chili, curry leaves, dal mixture and peanuts.
  2. Add finely chopped onions and fry until they turn lightly brown in color; Saute regularly.
  3. Meanwhile, wash and soak thick poha in water for about 3-4 minutes; Drain out all the water and keep aside.
  4. Once the onions are done, add poha, salt, sugar, grated coconut and mix well; Cook for about a minute or two.
  5. Switch off the stove; Add lemon juice and mix well.
  6. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot.

Prep Time: About 15-20 mins;

Serves: 1-2 people;

Tip:
  • Vary the soaking time for poha depending on how soft you want it. Longer you soak, the softer it becomes.
  • Use cooked rice instead of poha, and it becomes "Chitranna", a mixed rice variety that makes for a sumptuous one pot meal!!
