Poha was a stable food in our breakfast when I was with my mom. She used to make it different each time, everything taste great. I learned few recipes from my mother and now I am making it at my home. This one is the basic upma recipe which can be made in less than 15 mins.
It is nothing but a simple seasoned poha, this is so light on the tummy but has lots of fiber in it. I hope you will like it.
Aval / poha - 2 cups
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Green Chilli - 2 finely chopped
Curry leaves - 1 spring finely chopped
