PULI AVAL (UPMA)RECIPE

I am just back after 2 weeks break and still not in a mood to enter into the kitchen and to add up my friends are pampering me to take rest and sending me food for the past 2 days. So finally today i made a simple breakfast with aval| poha| rice flakes, which my mom makes very often. I have already posted a similar kind of puli upma with rice flour. Click Here for the recipe. This is a easy breakfast recipe and can be made in a jiffy. I thank all my fellow bloggers who visited my space in my absence and commented on my recipes. Soon I will catch up with all the yummy recipes which i missed out.

THICK POHA 1 CUP
THICK TAMARIND EXTRACT 4-5 TBLSP
OIL 2 TSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP

Hi..Nice Poaha recipe..nice touch to poha by adding Tamarind Extract.
