தாளிச்ச அவல் / Aval Thaalichathu (Upma) / Seasoned Poha with Coconut

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
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu paruppu - 1 tblspn
Coconut - 1/2 cup grated
Oil - 1 tblspn
Sal to taste


Take poha and sprinkle some water over it and mix well with your hands. Add some salt to it and mix well. Set this aside till use.

Now heat oil in a kadai. Add in mustard and urad dal and let it sizzle.

Add in onions, green chilli and curry leaves and mix well.

Add some salt and cook for a couple of mins.

Now add in the prepared poha mixture and toss well in the oil so that everything gets heated up.

Finally sprinkle grated coconut and mix well.

Serve hot.

  1. I had to look most of these ingredients up as I have never heard of them! I cannot imagine eating all that for breakfast. I have a banana which is quick and easy with a cup of herbal tea!
