Poha/Beaten Rice Snack

Poha/ Beaten Rice Snack
Hi Friends,
Poha a not very common thing for me. I do not like the version available in the market, very rarely i go for this dish. I tried few of its version at home but not satisfied with the outcome. This time i made some changes and liked the taste very much. It was crunchy, bit spicy and very satisfying. I like the aroma while i finished cooking part. Add whatever you like in it or just make simple. 

Ingredients:-
Poha       - 2 cups
Peanuts  - 1 cup
Potato     - 1 large (cut in small pieces)
Onion     - 1 large (cut in small pieces)
Tomato   - 1 large (cut in small pieces)
Curry Patta - 4-5
Lemon    - 1
Chat Masala - 1 tsp
Garam Masal - 1/2 tsp
Salt                - 1 tsp

Method:-

Take your ingredients
 
Take poha in a colander and run water over it and leave aside

Dry roast your peanuts in a pan or oven

Now heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and throw your potato in it.

Let them turn bit brown (within 2-3 min it will be done)

Now add onion and tomato

Mix Well and add Curry Patta

After 1 min add poha in it

Add peanuts

Add all spices and mix well

Now sprinkle 1 tbsp water in it, cover and cook for 30 seconds 
now uncover and saute for more 30 seconds

SQUEEZE LEMON JUICE AND SERVE

Notes:-
  1. You can add turmeric (haldi) for yellow color poha which is served in the market. I do not like that color.
  2. Adding potato, onion, tomato is purely optional. I like tit bit bites in it so i used them. You can avoid anything you don't like

HOPE YOU WILL LIKE IT
