Lemon Poha - Elumichai Aval

Lemon Poha - Elumichai Aval,  this is a simple and easy breakfast recipe. The procedure is same as we do for Lemon Rice, but the only difference is the way we handle the poha / aval. Many of us might do plain aval upma/poha upma or aloo poha etc. But this will be a little different recipe than the usual poha recipes. I generally like tangy dishes so no wonder I like this dish too. Do give it a try, hope you will also like it.

Lemon Poha - Elumichai Aval

Preparation Time : 15 Minutes | Cooking Time : 15 Minutes | Serves : 2

White Poha / Vellai Aval - 1 Cup
Lemon - 1 No.
Onion - 2 No.
Green Chili - 2 No.
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Curry Leaves - 2 Sprigs.
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Oil - 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste

1. Keep all the ingredients ready to make Lemon Poha.
a. Soak the poha in water for about 5 minutes and drain the water and keep it aside. (Refer Note Section below)
b. Chop the onions, green chilies and ginger.
c. Take a bowl and squeeze the juice of one lemon and add salt and turmeric powder. Mix well and keep it aside.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the chopped onion, green chilies, ginger and curry leaves. Saute till the onion turns transparent.
3. Switch off the flame and wait for a minute. Then, add the lemon mix and mix well. Switch on the flame and add the poha to it and toss it well.
4. Once it is nicely mixed, cover the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on low flame. Now switch off the flame and transfer it to a serving bowl.

Tasty Lemon Poha is ready to serve. Tastes best when hot.

1. The soaking time of poha depends upon the type of poha used. 
2. If the poha is little thin, then you may required about 3 to 5 minutes.
3. If the poha is little thick and hard, you need to soak it for more than 5 minutes.
4. Whatever may be the time soaked, you need to check the poha every one minute to see if it had become soft or not. If it is soft then drain it immediately else it will become like a paste.
