DADPE POHE

INGREDIENTS

Patal pohe / thin pressed rice
2 cup
Onion (finely chopped)
1 no. large
Tomato (finely chopped (optional)
1 no.
Fresh coconut (scraped)
3 – 4 tbsp
Green chillies (chopped)

2 – 3 tsp
FOR TADKA
 
Oil
3 tbsp
Rai / mustard seeds
½ tsp
Heeng / asafoetida
½ tsp
Haldi / turmeric pdr
¼ tsp

 


METHOD:

1.       Sieve the poha to remove any fine powder in it.

2.       Mix all the ingredients together with light hands leaving aside a little coconut and coriander leaves for garnish.
 


3.       Add the buttermilk or coconut water only if required. The idea is to provide it some moisture for the poha to get soft. But if you are using tomato in it then you can avoid.

4.       Put them in a bowl and cover with a tight fitting lid. Preferably if you can keep a little weight on it. Leave it covered for 15 – 20 min.
 


5.       Heat oil, add the rai, when it crackles add the Heeng and haldi.
 

6.       Pour this tadka over the prepared poha. Mix it up lightly and serve warm or room temp.
