Poha/ Lemon Aval Upma


1 cup beaten rice/poha/aval
2 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp blackgram dal
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 green chillies cut into half
Salt to taste
1 small onion chopped
1 medium sized potato (boiled and mashed)
Salt to taste
1 tsp lemon juice
Finely chopped coriander leaves

Wash the poha and drain out the water. Keep covered for 10 minutes. It would become very soft.

Heat oil, add mustard seeds and blackgram dal. When it splutters, add green chillies, turmeric powder and onions and cook for a minute. Add potatoes, salt and poha. Mix well.

Remove from stove and add lemon juice and finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix and serve hot.

Yum, such an easy and delicious recipe! Poha is one of my fav breakfasts. I make a poha dish with sweet potato and tomato in it, for added colour and nutrition. You can see pictures on my blog, if interested: http://mangosoup.blogspot.com/2009/08/sweet-potato-poha.html
