A good start to a day is when you eat right and feel healthy. A bed tea followed by a nice morning stroll do wonders for me. I try to bring variations to what I eat ever morning. Though the best I like for my breakfast is toast and boiled egg. I tried poha (rice flakes sauteed with onions and potato) today.

Ingredients :

1. Rice flakes : lightly soaked in water

2. Onions : finely chopped

3. Potato : diced in small cubes

4. Tomato : diced in small cubes

5. Split green & Red chillies

5. Coriander leaves and lemon for garnishing

Method :

1. Add oil to pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves

2. Add chopped onions and potatoes

3. Add turmeric , red chilli powder and salt as per taste . Mix nicely and lid to cook for 5 mins.

4. Add the split chillies and rice flakes and mix well

5. Cover with lid and cook for another 2 mins.

6. Garnish with coriander leaves and squeeze half a lemon.

Serve hot with a cup of ginger tea .


Note : While serving , you can also garnish the poha with Farsan(Haldiram mixture) or Aloo bhujiya (Haldiram Aaloo Bhujiya). It adds to the taste and you will love the crunch while you eat.
