Upma is one of the easiest and quickest dish that we can make for breakfast. You can make a variety of upma recipes with the simple aval / poha, so I always stock them in my pantry for a quick breakfast or even dinner. You can make a healthy vegetable poha upma, a plain and simple aval upma or a tangy upma with lemon or tamarind.
Puli aval is a quick and easy upma with tamarind tempered with lentils, chillies and peanuts. You don't need any side dish for this upma. Not only for breakfast, puli aval can be served as a evening snack too. If you are a working women or in a hurry to put up a healthy yet delicious breakfast, try this puli aval.
Notes and Tips
- Use only thick variety poha. Also wash the poha just once and don't soak for long else the poha will become mushy.
- You can also add ¼ tsp sambar powder while soaking the poha.
- You can use any oil but I recommend sesame oil as it gives a nice flavor.
