9 Poha recipes you wish Mom knew while you were growing up ?

Written by
Nothing tops a breakfast for me like steaming, soft kanda poha, fragrant with fried onions and chillies and garnished with peanuts and coriander. Just wash it lightly in water, allow it to sit for five minutes and it is ready to be eaten, cooked, mashed or even just plain tempered. But aren't you bored of having the same poha everyday! So ek plate gets you a list of various dishes your Mom could make you. :) So don't forget to share this post with her. 1.

Aval Dosa: Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 4.49.25 pm If you like the spongy whiteness of home-made dosas, then you will love aval dosa.

Poha Pakoda: Poha-Patties-Recipe-how-to-make-Poha-Patties Poha goes very well with pakodas and pattice as it not only binds well, but it also fries well.

Aval Kozhukattai: AVAL- Pronounced as aa-val koyu-kat-ai, these steamed spicy dumplings made of poha make for a lovely evening snack or breakfast dish and a really healthy one too. Here’s the recipe for it. 10. Aval Nanachuthu: hqdefault Nanachuthu (pronounced as na-na-chi-dhu) is basically Tamil and Malayalam for ‘soaked’ and that’s what this lovely dish is. It’s lightly soaked in jaggery and chewy to eat.
