Broccoli Poha

Poha is one of my favourites. We in south call it Aval Upma. As I have mentioned before my husband is not a big fan of Poha, mainly cause of the dryness. I have been trying to experiment with a few different varieties to make it interesting for him. This is another variety that I tried. Do check out the other versions that I prepared.

Tomato Poha
Soya Poha


Poha 2 cups
Broccoli 6 florets plucked into small pieces
Onions 1 finely chopped
Peanuts 2 tbsp
Channa Dal 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Cumin 1 tsp
Lime Juice 1 tbsp

Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Take Poha in a sieve and run it under the tap for a minute or two. Let it sit and drain.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard. When it sputters, add the channa dal and peanuts. When they start to brown, add the turmeric and jeera. When it sizzles, add the onions.

3. Saute onions till it is slightly browned. Add broccoli and salt. Cook till broccoli is done and crunchy.

4. Switch off. Add the poha and lemon juice and mix well.
