August 14, 2007 at 1:02 pm 3 comments

Breakfast in my house is usually standard south indian breakfast except with some exceptions sometimes.Cereals are usually the last preferred option. Breakfast is usually made within 5 minutes to 30 minns max.Most of the time the menu is idlies,dosas upmas,ponagal and sandwitches.Absolutely no deep fries during this meal of the day.

Poha or rice flakes is widely used in my kitchen all the time for making upma,pulihara,alu poha and also in making dosas.

My recipe today is Poha aka atukulu in telugu pulihara.It can be made under 10 minutes and a complete satisfying meal with very very little oil.
As this recipe is made almost instant in express time of less than 10 minutes and made of a rice product,Iam sending this recipe of mine to two food blog events at the same time.

1)Express Cooking Event by Shaheen of Malabar Spices

2)JFI – Rice hosted for this month by Sharmi of Neivedyam

Now the recipe:


Poha 2 cups

handful of peanuts

For popu -> 1 tsp urad dal,chana dal,mustard seeds,1/2 tsp cumin seeds,a dash or pinch of hing,2 dry red chillies,2 green chillies,pinch or turmeric,2 tsps or as required lemon juice


Wash and strain poha.Meanwhile heat a skillet,add a teaspoon oil and fry peanuts till 3/4 done.Add urad dal,chana dal,mustard seeds,cumin seeds and dry red chillies.When the dals are golden brown add slit green chillies,curry leaves, hing and turmeric.Now add washed and strianed poha. Add salt and stir well. Take off from heat and just before serving add lemon juice and stir well.Serve warm and enjo express breakfast
