Batata Pava(Poha)-Beaten Ricewith potato

Very simple to make Batata pava, poha with potato and few veg, fruit and nuts...quick to make for breakfast or simply for teaparty and children's lunchbox.  Goes perfact with tea, lassi,milkshakes or fizzy drinks.. I have learnt to make pava from our neighbour Divya Masi in India, she used to make perfact pava...whenever she makes she used to supply one plate to our house.....

You need:-

  • 2 cup Medium Pava
  • 1 medium finely chopped potatoes
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, cashewnuts and raisins
  • 2 tbsp finely chooped chillies and ginger
  • Salt to taste
  •  2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1tsp dry coconut powder
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp hing(asafoetida)
  • 3-4 Curry leaves
  • 3tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Tumeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala
  • Chopped coriander leaves

Metho:-

Wash the poha and leave it, make sure they are just damp not soggy.  Poha will be fluffy when you touch.  Heat the oil in kadai, add mustard seeds and hing, when they spulter add peanuts and fry them on low heat for a few minutes, now add curry leaves, chillies,ginger and potatoes. mix well and let it cook untill potatoes are cooked.  Add tumeric powder,Garam masala and salt.


Add fluffy poha and mix well on a low heat.add sugar,lemon juice,seasme seeds and coconut and mix it well.
Garnish with coriander and serve it...

I like to eat with chopped tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and chikoo pieces on top..

Hope you like it too....
