OK this is like the easiest breakfast you can make in minutes after upma, sandwich, noodles n blah blah :) Thanks to my friend Anagha who made this for us when we were at South Carolina last year :) The most memorable trip in the history of our life in US :)
It was unbelievably easy and she also made this again when she came to my place last year.
Your breakfast couldn't have gotten easier than this.
Unlike the usual thick poha breakfast , this one is different and needs thin poha which is otherwise known as paper avalakki. It's just a few basic ingredients and one wonderful breakfast for your busy mornings. Well the only drawback about this dish is that you cant carry this in your lunch box as it may dry out or may go stale as it requires you to add a little bit of shredded coconut.
But trust me, your mornings are never the same with the usual corn flakes, cereals and bagels.
Do try it and let me know how it turns out :)
Shelf life- 1/2 a day
1. Heat oil in a saucepan and add the mustard, jeera and green chillis. Add the onions and fry until they turn transclusent. Now add turmeric, cilantro, curry leaves and give it a stir. Allow it to cool.
Add the poha, coconut and sprinkle the lime juice. Mix all of it until the poha softens a bit and mixes well with all of it. Enjoy it with curds or pickle.
|Thin Poha/ paper avalakki
|Onion, finely chopped
|Green chillis, finely chopped
|Cilantro/ coriander, chopped
|Shredded frozen/fresh coconut
- Make sure you finish it soon after you prepare it as it may dry out soon.
- Adding coconut can be reduced by half if you're on a low cal diet. The lime juice and cilantro play an important role in moistening the poha. So don't miss adding them.
