I still remember the first time I had this dish. One of the fashion models had wrote that Poha is her favorite dish and the recipe was also given there in THE HINDU.

Immediately my mom made this dish and till date it is always made in our house.

The first time when I gave this to BIL Chandu, he also loved it. Whenever, he comes to Chennai I make it for him.


 Flat Rice - 2 Cups
Roasted Groundnuts - 1 Tablespoon
Green Chillies - 2 (finely chopped)
Onion - 1 (Finely chopped)
Potato -1 (small, peeled and boiled and mashed)
Peas - 1 Tablespoon
Turmeric and Asafoetida - a pinch

In a kadai heat little oil. To this add some Mustard seeds and after it splutters add the onion,green chillies and cook well. Then add the potatoes and Saute.
