vegetable Poha / vegetable aval upma

I make aval upma very often.  But this vegetable poha was something which I learned from srivalli. Its very easy to make and it took just 10 mts altogether to finish the recipe.

  1. Thick Poha (getti aval) - 1 cup
  2. Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
  3. Carrot - 1 or 1/2 depending upon the req. quantity (finely chopped)
  4. Peas - 3 tbsp
  5. salt to taste
  6. Oil - 2 tsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  8. Urad dhall - 1 tsp
  9. channa dhall -  1tsp
  10. Green chillies - 1 (optional)
  11. asafoetida -  a pinch
  12. curry leaves & coriander leaves - for garnishing.
  13. Roasted Almond Powder - 2 tsp
Wash poha nicely and soak it in water for 5 minutes. Drain it after it becomes soft and keep it aside. In the mean time, preheat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, fry urad dhall, channa dhall, green chillies & asafoetida for a minute. Add onion and saute for couple of minutes. Now add the other vegetables one by one and let it cook few 3 to 5 minutes. When the vegetable becomes tender,  add the drained poha, add required amount of salt and roasted almond powder ** and mix everything well.  Garnish it with curry leaves & coriander leaves.

** Srivalli has used roasted peanut powder instead of almond powder.

I love veggie upma too But my husband isn't that fond of it so I end up adding just onions .
