Matar Poha

Poha is a traditional dish that comes from Maharashtra. Poha is breakfast item that is simple and less spicy. It has many varieties. The traditional one being normal poha and batata poha. However, I have tried the same dish with little modification and added green peas in place of Potato/ Batata.

Ingredients :- Poha/Chuwda - 250 gms
green peas 150 gms
green chili - 3 nos minced
Onion diced - 1 small size
diced tomato - 1 medium size
peanuts - 20 gms
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
2 tsp oil
1 tsp lemon juice

Method :- Wash the poha, drain the water and keep it aside. In a pan add the oil, when oil is heat add the coriander seeds. Then add the green chili, peanuts,onion and cook till onion turns golden brown. Then add the tomatoes, green peas , salt, turmeric and cook till peas are cooked. Add the poha and mix well. Cook for 2 mins and remove from flame. Add lemon juice and serve hot.
