METHOD:

  • Chop the onion and tomato finely.
  • In a small pan add oil and throw in the mustard seeds and red chilli , curry leaves and asafoetida.(Don’t search curry leaves here, i was running out of that on the day i made it).
  • When it splutters transfer it to the aval/poha mixture and mix it nicely with your hands.

  • Mean while we can start baking the spring roll sheets.
  • Thaw the sheets and take out a single sheet.
  • I used the small one. Either you can bake the small sheet as it is by keeping it in the muffin liner . If you don’t cut the sheets then it is difficult to fit into your mouth.
  • Or you can cut the the sheets into two and fold it and keep it in a muffin tray.
  • I cut them into 2 and baked ( i for got to click at this stage.Will update it soon.

  • Bake this sheets for 10mins in 150 degree C or till the sheets turn  crisp like a papad.
  • Repeat the same  process for the rest of the sheets.
  • You can do this baking process 2-3 days in advance and keep them in a air tight container.

How i served:

  1. Just arrange the baked spring roll cups in a plate.
  2. Add 1 tsp of aval/poha we made.
  3. Just sprinkle some onion and and 2-3 tomato pieces.
  4. To this add little scrapped coconut and finally garnish with some nylon sev../omapodi.

The poha can be eaten as it as a evening snack without serving on the sheets too.

Just add the onions , tomatoes,coconut and sev while serving .

Since no cooking is involved this will be become soggy soon, prepare this 10 mins before eating.

    1. I don't recommend to add chutneys in this recipes as we add coconut i feel if we add chutneys it will spoil the taste.
