  1. You  can add boiled and cubed potatoes to this upma .
  2. If adding potatoes add it after sauting the peanuts.

  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.

Hi jeyashri, I made the poha today just as you said..but its try and little hard to eat..is this the way it will be…pls advise..

Reply

No it will be very soft and easy to chew and eat. May be you must have soaked and drained the poha and kept it open for a long time. always wash the poha and soak it for a minute in water and drain the water and add to the veggies. If you find dry while making just sprinkle some water and give it a nice mix.
