Poha recipe

Sweet and savory aval | Easy no – cook poha recipes – Sweet and savory version of no cook poha recipe – Both recipes with full video and step by step pictures.

Poha | aval | rice flakes are used in Indian cuisine in various ways. We make different varieties of upma, vadai, payasam using poha | aval. It’s very difficult to get into the kitchen and cook an elaborate meal during summer days. At least one meal a day we can switch to non-cooked foods, such as salads and fruits. Sometimes when we get bored with salads, you can try this healthy poha recipe.

I have given 2 versions of aval | poha recipe. One is a sweet version, similar to the vella aval, we make for Krishna Jayanthi. The other one is a simple version with basic seasoning and garnished with onion and tomato. Apart from the seasoning, we are not doing any cooking in these recipes. I can say it is a perfect bachelor recipe too. As we are adding nuts and using very little oil, it is a very healthy recipe too. Using red poha makes it even healthier.
