2 cups poha (thick flattened rice),
1 big potato, peeled and cut into small cubes,
few curry leaves,
2-3 green chilli,cut into 1 inch length
1 big sized onion, chopped
1/2 cup green peas, 2 medium sized tomato,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder,
salt as per your taste,
1 tbsp sugar,1 tbsp lemon juice,
for garnishing corainder leaves,
1 tbsp oil .
Wash poha in a sieve under running water. Drain & keep aside.(I use drain it as shown in pic above, thos completely removes excessive water and soak poha very well). Then Heat oil in kadhai or pan, add onion, chili and curry leaves. when onion turns pink, add turmeric powder , and cut potatoes.Cover and cook till potatoes are tender. next add green peas to it and after 1 minute add salt to it.
Finally add well soaked poha to it, mix well with all ingredients and cook on low heat, next add tomato to it. then add sugar and let it cook for 1-2 mins on low heat.
for this we don't need to cook tomato very well, as it tastes best when it is little in its original taste. one can even add tomato after the whole cooking process is done, even that taste better.
Finally turn off the heat and then add lemon juice to it. mix it well to spread its taste to whole batata poha dish. garnish it with coriander leaves and serve hot. Don't forget to add your love to this, as thats the main thing which adds taste to any dish :)
Enjoy a Nutritious breakfast- as it has very low oil, tomato and green peas high in Nutritions and curry leaves with just spread linger of hunger in our stomach . :))
