Poha is a popular Maharashtrian breakfast recipe. My mom used to make poha often for breakfast or for evening tea. Either it used to be made with onions only or with onions and potato.
Poha is the Maharashtrian word for flattened or beaten rice. In Marathi it often said Kande Pohe cha beth - it is understood that a boy coming to see a girl at her house.
This is an easy and quick breakfast to prepare.
1 1/2 Cup Poha
2 Potatoes - cubed
2 Teaspoons Green Peas
2 Teaspoons Peanuts
2 Teaspoons French Beans
2 Teaspoons Carrot - finely chopped
2 Teaspoons Cabbage - finely chopped
1 Capsicum - chopped
2 Onions - sliced
2 Green Chilies - finely chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
3 Tablespoons Coriander Leaves - finely chopped
1 Lemon juice
3 Tablespoons Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
A spring Curry leaves
Salt to taste
2 Tablespoons Coconut grated
Wash the poha nicely and strain all the water out. Keep it aside.
Heat oil in kadai. Add mustard seeds and peanuts.
When they splutter add onions, chilies, potatoes, carrot, green peas, capsicum, cabbage and curry leaves.
Fry them till the onions turn pink and the vegetables become soft. Add turmeric powder, salt.
