Aval Upma /Poha Upma

I wrote a big story with this post and published it yesterday. That post is no longer available because of blogger maintenance issues(i guess!!). Got it back after some days,Just copy pasting it:

My DH is a big fan of aval(poha),but not me!!;) He just love this easy breakfast,while I feel its kind of dry. Obviously its been a real real real long time we had this. Last week end somehow (actually there was a lunch party in the same day! ;)) I made up my mind for this breakfast.

Even though I make this once in a blue moon,every time I make some taste adjustments like adding veggies or soaking the aval(poha) in tamarind water, adding peanuts. This time,added lemon juice.****


Onion -1
Green chilly-2
Few curry leaves
Mustard seeds-1teaspoon
Channa dhal-1teaspoon
Urad dhal-1teaspoon
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Lemon Juice from half of a large lemon

Wash the aval(poha) 2-3 times and strain 90% of the water and keep it aside for 5 minutes.
Cut the onion-g.chilli into thin slices.
Heat oil in a kadai, make the tempering with mustard seeds,channa dhal and urad dhal.
Add onion-g.chilly and curry leaves with turmeric powder.
Saute them till the onion bcecomes transparent. Now add the sugar and salt. Mix it well.
Add the aval(poha) and reduce the heat to low. Fry for 2-3 minutes, then add in the lemon juice and switch off the stove.
Aval upma is ready to serve.

Suddenly one of our friend showed up for breakfast, so I prepared a quick n yummy pea-nut chutney, as a side dish for this upma & prepared some dosai as well. You would think what a weird combination is this??! But,trust me when you are not in a mood to cook elaborate meal, aval upma - peanut chutney comes handy! :)

Sending this recipe to Bachelor's Feast event happening at Jaleelaa akkaa's Samaiyal attakaasam


  1. ஒரு தோழி வீட்டில் சாப்பிட்டு இருக்கிறேன். அது முதல் சில முறை சமைத்தும் இருக்கிறேன். அவர்கள் வெங்காயம், சன்னா, உளுந்து போட்டிருக்கவில்லை. கிழங்கு துருவிப் பொரித்துப் போட்டிருந்தார்கள். அடுத்த முறை இதுபோல் சமைத்துப் பார்க்கிறேன் மகி.

  2. I liked the different way of preparing poha. Shall try for recipe for todays snacks. Looks yummy and tempting.


Thank You Very Much for taking time to come here and adding your comment! It means a lot to me! :)
