Aval Upma


Its Blog Hop Wednesday, I have been paired with Rajani of My kitchen Trails. Its interesting to note the little stories she writes as an introduction before the recipe itself and she has some unique recipes in her blog. Do check her space. I tried Aval upma from her blog for breakfast today. It tasted good and it was light. You can also add vegetables to this upma.

Ingredients

1 cup-Aval(Beaten rice flakes)
1 medium sized-Onion
Green Chilli-1
Lemon juice optional
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Oil-2 tsp
Urad dal-1 tsp
Mustard-1 tsp
Curry Leaves -A sprig
Salt-to taste
Water to soak Aval

Soak Aval for ten minutes if your using the thick variety. I used the medium variety. Take oil in pan. Add mustard, wait for it to splutter. Add Urad dal, let it brown. Add curry leaves and then Onion. Let the onions turn transparent. Now take the soaked Poha from water add it to the pan, add turmeric powder and salt to taste. Let this cook for 2-3 minutes. Take off the pan, squeeze lemon juice and serve. Another keeper recipe for sure.
