AVAL UPMA/POHA UPMA- EASY BREAKFAST RECIPE

      This is an very easy upma  which is made with poha(rice flakes) and quite healthy too. We all love this upma and this  will be our morning breakfast during weekend.

For this upma i used the THICK POHA. You can use the thin one also.

  • In a kadai, add a little oil and saute the capsicum for 5 mins.

  • Keep it aside.

POHA UPMA

Note:

  1. You  can add boiled and cubed potatoes to this upma .
  2. If adding potatoes add it after sauting the peanuts.
  3. This has to be served hot
  4. If you are using thin poha,just skip the step of soaking in the water for a minute.

Wish all my reader, friends,visitors a very HAPPY PONGAL.
