Poha (beaten rice) is a must have ingredient in my pantry. Poha is very handy when you have unexpected guest or when you need a quick meal. Dadpe pohe, a mixture of raw beaten rice with shredded fresh coconut, green chillies and lemon juice. This is slightly spicy from green chillies, tangy from the lemon juice and sweet from coconut...wao what a great combination!
1 cups Thin Poha
1/2 cup grated fresh coconut
1 big Onion
1 Lemon juice
Sugar to taste
1 Green chilly
Salt to taste
2 tbsp. Oil
1/2 tsp. each Mustard + Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp. Turmeric
Few Curry leaves
Cilantro to garnish
Heat oil. Add the mustard seeds, after they crackle add cumin seeds, add asafetida. Add curry patta and turmeric powder. Let this tadka cool a little.
Finely chop the Onions, tomato and Cilantro. Mix together the Poha, onion, grated coconut(I used frozen) and green chili. Add the salt and sugar.
Add the Tadka to the poha. Add lemon juice. Mix thoroughly.
Garnish with chopped cilantro and keep it for some time, so that the poha get soft.
This snack does not need any water as the onion and coconut help in making the poha soft.
