Easy to digest, full of flavors, this savory flattened rice Indian dish offers a lot on a morning breakfast plate or pair it with a hearty soup or salad for lunch.
*add 1/2 tsp more if you like your poha a little heavy on mustard seed taste.
**you can add one more chili if you like spicier poha; however, too many chilies can drown out the mustard taste.
Add peanuts: you can also add dry-roasted peanuts as garnish.
Add tomato: add a coarsely-chopped tomato in the last two minutes of cooking.
Add non-sprouted lentils: soak lentils overnight and cook in water enough to cover. Cook till soft but not mushy. Drain and add instead of sprouted lentils. Yellow split moong and whole brown lentils (saaboot masoor) works really well.
No potatoes--if avoiding potatoes, this recipe taste just as great without adding spuds.
