How is everyone doing. It is the end of the first month of this new year.
How has it been for you guys? Any new changes or back to old comfortable me.
Me? Im hanging in between. There are days of positivity and energy and action.There are also days of serious procrastination, laziness and crankiness. Well sue me, I’m human. I got 50 shades of every emotion! 😀
Republic Day of India just happened. One of the days to be really proud and amazed at my country and roots and what it has to offer. Different states have different varieties of food. We have all experienced Indian Moghlai and Indian Punjabi cuisines, through dishes such as Chicken Tikka , Biryani , Samosas etc.
So I bring to you today a specialty from the Maharashtrian region, it is called OATS POHA.It is very light, completely satisfying and might I add extremely delicious. Back in India, people eat it as a savoury breakfast.
So here we go.
TIME: 30 mins.
Serves 2-3 ppl.
1 1/2 cup Quaker Oats
Coconut Oil for cooking
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 Red Onion-chopped
1/4 cup Red Onion-chopped to use as toppings(Optional)
2 Green Chilies-chopped
1/2 cup Fresh Curry Leaves
A pinch of Asafoetida
1 big tsp of Dried Mango Powder(Amchur Powder)
1/2 tsp Dried Coriander Powder
1/4 cup Unsalted Peanuts-crushed
Juice of 1 lemon-to add before serving
Fresh chopped coriander for garnish (optional)
HOW TO PREPARE:
Take a non-stick pan. Add in the oil and on medium heat add in the mustard seeds and let them crackle. Add in the asafoetida and mix.
Add in the onions and cook them until light pink in color.
Next add in the chilies and curry leaves.
Add in the oats and the mango powder and coriander powder and salt. Mix well.
Add in the crushed peanuts and give it a mix. Take the pan off the heat, let it cool.
Just before serving, add in the lemon juice and chopped coriander. Mix and Enjoy.
Tip- you can roast the oats if you like, before adding them to the pan.
Take the Oats Poha for a light lunch or even as tiffin treats for the little one. It is a great pick for travel, as it is delicious and without the mess. Add it to your quirky adult lunch boxes and you are ready to go.
Share your love 🙂 ❤
