Vegetable Poha

 Poha is something that we cook one or twice times in breakfast within week. It’s a very healthy, nutritious meal for breakfast. In a Central India or Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra……They call Pohe. Today I prepared Poha with lots of veggie with different colors….hot and steaming poha.......look so Yumm and colourful in bowl. One of mine friend wants the Poha recipe in the blog….... So this recipe is dedicated to him.

Now for those who are not familiar with Poha, its nothing but flattened rice. It absorbs water very well and very quickly and so is a great option for something quick. You can find it in two varieties- Thick poha and thin poha.  Poha is very famous and healthy meal which generally cooked in every kitchen....so you can easily find various variations in it from one culture to another.
3 cup Poha
1 small sized potato (peeled and chopped)
1 medium sized onion (peeled and chopped)
¼ cup peas
¼ cup carrot (peeled and chopped)
1 medium sized tomato (fine chopped)
2 green chillies (fine chopped)
1 tbsp. fresh green coriander (chopped)
½ lemon juice (halves)
1 tsp. sugar
½ tsp. mustard seed (rai)
½ tsp. mustard seed (sarso)
1 tbsp. oil
Salt to taste
2 tsp. coriander powder
½ tsp. turmeric powder
½ tsp. amchoor (raw mango powder)
¼ tsp. red chilli powder
¼ tsp. garam masala
Wash the poha nicely and strain out all the water and keep aside.
Heat the oil in a wok or kadai. Add mustard seeds (rai and sarso). When they start to splutter add onions and green chillies. Boil the all three veggies i.e. chopped carrots, potatoes and green peas in microwave for just 3-4 minutes. Drain excess water and add in to kadai sauté for 10 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and sauté for 5 minutes more, when veggies look soft and cooked.
Add all spices (garam masala, turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili and amchoor) except salt. Add poha and salt. Mix well.
Add sugar, lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with green sauce or extra lemon wedges.
