How to Make Poha with green peas

  • Wash the beaten rice two times and drain. Squeezing is not necessary.
  • Let the wet poha stand for about 20 minutes, till it resembles cooked rice.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
  • When mustard seeds splutter, add the two dals and roast till golden in colour.
  • Add the asafoetida powder.
  • Add the broken red chillies and fry till crisp.
  • Add the curry leaves, and then the green peas and salt.
  • If you are using frozen peas, cover with a lid and let the peas cook on low fire.
  • Next add the soaked poha and blend well.
  • Cover and cook on low heat for two minutes.
  • Remove lid and stir well to break up lumps if any.
