10 mins breakfast - Kammani Attukulu/Spice less Poha

            This is a very easy and very quick to make.Mainly we will have it during fasting days as we need not add onion and garlic.Moreover it will take only 10 minutes to  prepare but still will be tasty.So here goes the simple and quick recipe.

Kindly adjust with the lightning in the pics as i did this for dinner.

Ingredients :

Rice Flakes/Poha 2 cups(heaped)
Water 1 cup
Grated Coconut 2 tbsp
Roasted gram(powdered) 3-4tsp
Salt Req

Seasoning :

Urad dall 3/4 tsp
Dahi mirchi/Sun dried chillies 4-5 nos
Curry leaves Few
Cashew(optional) Req
Oil&ghee 2 tbsp

Method :

1.Wash the rice flakes and strain the water completely.Boil 1 cup of water and put the washed rice flakes and press it tightly so that entire flakes i well soaked in water.Keep aside up to 15-20 minutes.

2.In a wok pour oil&ghee and then put the urad dall,curry leaves,cashew and sun dried chillies.

3.Once everything is fried now add the soaked rice flakes and salt and saute till 3-4 minutes.

4.Now add the grated coconut and saute for 2-3 minutes and put off the fire.Now add the powdered roasted gram and mix well.

5.Can use the sun dried chillies which we have used while seasoning,as the side dish for rice flakes.Enjoy a different taste of poha.If sun dried chillies is not available can have with pickle.

Notes :

1.Can use coconut oil instead of normal cooking oil in case if we like the smell of coconut oil.

2.In case the rice flakes is thin add less water and can soak for less time.I used thick rice flakes.

3.For seasoning can add normal red chillies instead of sun dried chillies.But if we add sun dried chillies we can use it as a side dish for the rice flakes itself which will taste good.

4.I use to have it with mahani kizhangu as the side dish.

5.If we don't boil the water,have to soak around 30-40 minutes.For the rice flakes to get soaked quickly we are adding the boiled water.

6.Should not add more water as the rice flakes will become as a ball.
