Atukulu – poha or Beaten rice is dehusked flattened raw rice. Which is easily digestible and very popular across India in many forms like upma, payasam and also fried in little oil mix with spices and nuts can eaten as a savory in some places. But most of the places people make this as a break fast. Ummm I like to have this with milk and jaggery as porridge. Healthy, easily digestible and better then rice because they are not polished. And here I am with lots of vegetables with poha here I go with the recipe……..
Poha (beaten rice flakes) ----- 1 cup
Onion --- 1 small chopped
Green chilies --- 3 chopped
Cauliflower --- 1/4 cup cut in to very small pieces
Carrot – 1 tab sp chopped
Green peas (fresh or frozen) ---- 1 tab sp
Potato --- 1 small peeled and finely chopped
Curry leaves – 10 no.
Oil – 1 tab sp
Mustard seeds – 1/ tea sp
Cumin seeds --- 1/2 tea sp
Ground nuts (pea nuts) --- 1 tab sp
Lemon juice --- 1 tab sp
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tea sp
Asafetida --- 1/4 tea sp
Wash poha and leave a side.
Take chopped carrot, cauliflower, potato and green peas in a microwave bowl and sprinkle 1 tab sp water and cook in microwave high for 3 min.
By that time heat oil in a fry pan add mustard seeds and let them popup then add cumin seeds and ground nuts and fry till light golden.
Then add chopped onion and green chilies and curry leaves and fry till onion become soft add asafetida and stir for 1 sec. and add cooked vegetables.
And fry vegetables till all moisture is evaporated.
Now add turmeric powder and poha, lemon juice and stir well to combine all ingredients.
