How to make South Indian flavoured beaten rice pilaf/pulao

  1. Firstly, chop all the vegetables into small chunks except for the green peas.
  2. Heat 1 tblsp. oil in a pan, add raw peanuts first and fry till brown, takes about 2-3 minutes, then add cashews and fry until they turn golden. Keep aside.
  3. In the same pan, add vegetables and saute, over low heat, until they are just done, remove and keep the veggies aside. Fry the coconut pieces in the same oil.
  4. In the same pan, add 1 tblsp. oil, then temper the oil with dry red chilli, ginger and green chillies, mustard seeds, curry leaves and poppy seeds.
  5. Clean rice flakes/poha nicely with water, drain all the water and immediately add into the pan. Add fried vegetables, green peas, green mung dal and nuts.
  6. Mix well everything. Add salt, turmeric and red chilli powder and mix again. It should not be on heat for long time, otherwise poha will be mushy.
  7. Add a pinch of sugar(it balances all the taste of the dish). Stir and mix everything quickly and remove from heat.
  8. Sprinkle some fresh coriander leaves and serve garnished with some extra coconut slices on top and serve warm.
My Tip: Never Soak poha as it becomes soggy in a minute. Clean, rinse, drain and use immediately. It can be an awesome evening snack or lunch box recipe for kids as well as for office goers. It can stop your hunger pangs for long time and you can concentrate on your work. Isn't it?
