Bhajjile Phovu/Spicy Roasted Poha

Ingredients to make Bhajjile Phovu/Spicy Roasted Poha

  • 3 tbsp raw peanuts
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • 1/4 tsp hing/asafetida
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 cups thin poha
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • salt to taste
  • Fresh grated coconut for serving

How to make Bhajjile Phovu/Spicy Roasted Poha

  1. Heat oil in a deep saucepan or kadai; add mustard seeds and let it crackle. Once it has popped, add the peanuts and lower the heat. Fry the peanut on medium low heat, stirring continuously until they are crisp and fried.
  2. Once the peanuts are roasted, add the green chilies, hing, turmeric powder and curry leaves and fry again for a few seconds.
  3. Now, stir in poha and salt to taste. Mix well and keep roasting the poha on medium low flame until they are crisp and coated with all the spices.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool. Serve crisp and spicy south Indian style low-calorie, low-oil roasted poha topped with lots of fresh grated coconut and a piping hot cup of tea or coffee! Enjoy!

My Tip:

If you have roasted peanuts, add them after the seasoning of green chilie and curry leaves. Use the thin variety of poha or flattened rice flakes. For different flavors and textures, you can add garlic, cashew nuts, almonds etc. Poha roasted this way can be stored in an airtight container for at least a week and then served with fresh coconut whenever there is a snack attack.
