Poha for Breakfast

Image

These special rice flakes make the most amazing breakfast with the unassuming name of poha.  I can tell you that it is tasty with just a bit of hot  peppers,  nuts (peanuts, I think),   and crunchy cereal on top for a variation of textures. There must be some masala because, after all, it is Indian cuisine!  As the finishing touch….ta da…….chopped red onions!

Of course, India is such an amazing country. . . . they eat onions for breakfast!  Yum. . . .

  4. This is a mouth-watering post! There is variation of this dish, Aloo-poha, that I can have for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the same day! It has diced boiled potatoes, green chillies, onions, turmeric, curry leaves, mustard seeds, cilantro, and lime juice added at the end. Hope you get a chance to try it – or perhaps you can get an Indian friend to cook it for you one day.

      I really don’ t like to think and the Indian recipes go on and on with instructions and spices. Bummer as I loved the food. My architect and I said we were the only people on the face of the earth who came home heavier then when we arrived in India!
