BM #85 Week 4 Day 3 - 

This is a quick and easy fusion breakfast/snack recipe combining our favorite Schezwan sauce and the humble Poha/flattened rice with loads of finely chopped vegetables.

When I was looking at some fusion breakfast recipes, I came across the idea of Schezwan Poha and loved the idea. Please feel free to alter the proportions of the ingredients to suit your palate.

In this instance, the love for Schezwan sauce won over the hate for Poha and was enjoyed by my better half as well.

Ingredients - 

Poha / Flattened Rice 1 1/2 cups (The thick variety works best)
Mixed Vegetables (I used cabbage, carrot, green beans), finely chopped 2 cups
Salt as needed
Soy Sauce 1 tsp (Optional)
Schezwan Sauce 2 Tbsp (or as needed)
Spring onion for garnish
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp)

Method Of Preparation -

In a colander, wash and drain the thick poha and set aside for a few minutes.

In a heated pan, add oil and saute the vegetables until they are slightly cooked but retain the crispness. [about 3-4 minutes].

Sprinkle salt and soy sauce (if using). Mix well while adding the schezwan sauce. Let the flavors blend for a minute or so.

Add in the drained poha, mix well, cover and remove from heat. Leave it covered for about 5 minutes so that the poha can absorb all the flavors in the steam.

Uncover and serve warm for a filling breakfast/snack. 


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 2-3
