Poha (chirer poha)

 
Serves: 4 , Preparation Time: 20 minutes


Ingredients:
2 cups of Poha (Beaten Rice or Flatten Rice)
4 florets of cauliflower
1 medium potato
1 small carrot
1 tbsp green peas
1 medium capsicum
1 green chilli
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp ginger chopped
1 tbsp half crushed groundnut
5-6 cashewnuts
1 tsp whole jeera
2 red whole chilly
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tsp sugar
1 green cardamom
3-4 curry leaves
juice of one lemon
salt to taste
1 tsp ghee (optional)
2 tbsp refined oil
chopped coriander half a bunch


Method:
Before I start....... a little information about Poha. Flatten rice is actually dehusked rice, which is made into light and flat dry flakes which has the tendency to swell when soaked in water.
Set aside 2 cups of poha soaked and strained. Make sure the soaked poha is not lumpy. Cut all the vegetables into small cubes and fry till tender. Keep the fried vegetables aside.
Now heat oil in a kadhai. Throw in 2 whole red chillies, 1tsp whole jeera, mustard seeds and bay leaf. Allow to splutter, add crushed cardamom, ground nut, cashew nuts and ginger. Add the fried vegetables, black pepper and fry for a minute.
Now add the soaked and strained poha .Add salt, sugar, ghee (optional) and lemon juice, mix and cook for a while on a low flame. Garnish it with chopped coriander and serve hot.
