Red aval poha


2 cups red aval/poha/beaten rice/flattened red rice soaked in water for atleast 1 hour
2 tsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
2 green chillies slit into half
1 onion chopped
1 medium potato boiled and cubed
Finely cut coriander leaves
1 tbsp lemon juice

Heat oil, add cumin seeds. When it splutters, add chopped onion and green chillies. Fry for 2 minutes and add turmeric powder. Mix well and add soaked red aval. Add salt, potato and mix well. After a minute, switch off the flame and add lemon juice and coriander leaves. Mix well. Serve hot.

P.S. Red poha takes more time to get soft as compared to white poha. So, let it stay soaked for atleast an hour for best results.

You seem to have a craze for poha too as I can see in the varied recipes you have posted with it. I love red poha, and enjoy experimenting with it. Nice seeing this recipe on your blog.
I like the simplicity of your recipes – they just seem such a quick solution for sudden guests. My cousin who dislikes elaborate cooking was seeing your blog the other day and said it inspired her very much since your recipes are true to your blog name. Truly simple and Indian!
