Ingredients to make Phova Chetni | Pova Chutney ~ Mangalore Style Spiced Beaten Rice

  • 2 or 2-1/2 cups thin beaten rice (flattened rice) * see note
  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut * see notes
  • 1 small onion finely chopped (optional)
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons sambhar powder (I used Nayak's) * see note
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar or jaggery
  • salt to taste (about 1/2 - 3/4th teaspoon)
  • For tempering:
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 2-3 sprigs (about 15-18) curry leaves
  • 2-3 teaspoons oil

How to make Phova Chetni | Pova Chutney ~ Mangalore Style Spiced Beaten Rice

  1. In a large bowl add the grated coconut, sambhar powder, jaggery or sugar and salt to taste. Mix it well squeezing the coconut with your hand - this help activate the moisture and juiciness of the coconut.
  2. Add the chopped onion if you are going to serve it immediately, otherwise add it along with the beaten rice and give it one good mix.
  3. In a smaller pan heat the oil and add the mustard. When it stops spluttering add the curry leaves and fry them on a medium heat taking care not to burn them. Pour this seasoning into the coconut mixture.
  4. When you are ready to serve add the beaten rice to the above mixture and give it a good mix - check sweetness and salt and adjust accordingly.
  5. Serve with tea or coffee
My Tip: Notes: 1. Most shops sell thicker version of flattened rice which is has short and thick flakes - this is used in the preparation of Maharashtrian style Poha and hence is not suitable. Ask for the one which is called as thin/pathla poha or even chivda poha may be used (chivda is a dry snack using beaten rice flakes, peanuts, raisins etc) 2. If you are using frozen grated coconut, microwave it for 20 seconds and bring it to room temperature. 3. For a Mangalorean touch try using a Mangalorean brand of sambhar powder or home made blend if possible.

Dry flattened rice has to be used, don't have to soak it in water or something.
