I usually love poha/ aval/ flattened rice in any form except sweet. But I make south Indian versions like tamarind poha, lemon poha and poha upma. But when I went to Pune in June, my MIL told me, you will struggle for food there. As I said in some other post, she never knew my love towards north Indian food. I totally enjoyed food there and want to explore more food if I visit next time. She even mocked us for not cooking anything there in my BIL’s house. But, come on!! Who will sit and cook when we are in holidays??!! Having said that, I have to cook this time when we are going to Langawi this month end. Just for my in-laws sake, otherwise they will starve there! .
For breakfast, my BIL bought from a near by shop – I had this poha twice. It was so different from the south Indian version aval upma. It was mild and had a sweet taste, with lots of onions. I make it dry, but this was a bit oily. So from that time, I wanted to post it here, so here comes the time for it. After that full meals, even my blog needs a simple recipe. (Only recipe wise - not a low calorie.. this one is very filling one!)
Enjoy it hot, with a cup of tea. Perfect for breakfast or as an evening snack too.
