Poha Pulao

For this edition of Blog Hop Wednesdays, I have been paired with Suchi of Kitchen Karma. While browsing her space, I found this interesting recipe and thought it would be a good choice for my lunch. 

It was so good that my husband who hates poha finished the bowl which I had set aside for my dinner. :) The original version doesn't have the ground masala which is solely my addition to suit my taste.

Ingredients - 

Poha / Beaten Rice / Atukulu 3/4 cup
Mixed Veggies (I used beans, carrots, cauliflower, sweet potato, onions) 2 cups
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Garam Masala 1/4 tsp (or as needed)
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, cloves 2, cardamom 1, cinnamon 1/2 inch, bay leaf 1-2, cashews few, raisins few)
To Grind - 
Mint 10-12 leaves
Coriander leaves chopped 2 Tbsp
Ginger chopped 1 tsp
Garlic 1 clove
Green Chilli 1-2
Tomato chopped 1/4 cup

Poha Pulao

Method Of Preparation -

Boil all the veggies separately until they are just about cooked and set aside.

Grind all the ingredients listed under 'To Grind'  and set aside.

Wash Poha / Atukulu / beaten rice and drain water and set aside.

In a heated wok/kadai, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. After they brown a little, saute the onions until they are translucent.

Add the boiled veggies and the ground masala. Saute the mixture for a couple minutes.

Add turmeric, salt and garam masala. Add in the washed and drained poha and remove from fire after a minute or so.

Squeeze in some lemon juice as required and serve it with raitha of your choice.
