Leftover Idlies & Poha Lemon Sevai


I tried this last week.... only 3 idlies was left, ..... thinking what to to, then got an idea and mixed 1 cup of Poha with it. It was tasty, main thing, my hubby like it ;)
Try this, Good Quick Breakfast!


Ingredients:
Idlies - 2-3
Aval(Flat Rice flakes/Poha/Atukulu) - 1 cup
Onions - 1, medium sized, finely chopped
Green chillies - 2, cut into 2 halves
Curry leaves - few
Ginger paste - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad dal - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 1-2 tablespoons
Coriander leaves - few, chopped
Salt to taste
Oil/Ghee - 1-2 tablespoons
Hot water - 2 cups

Method:
Add flat rice flakes to a sieve. Pour hot water to it so that all the flakes get wet. Leave it aside for 10-15 minutes. Flakes will puff up and become soft.

Crush the idlies with hand to make them powder. Make sure there are no big lumps.

Heat oil/ghee in a pan and allow mustard seeds to splitter in it.

Add urad dal, asafoetida powder, curry leaves, green chillies, turmeric powder and fry for a minute.

Then add chopped onions, ginger paste and fry until they are golden brown.

Add poha, powdered idlies, lemon juice with salt and mix well for few minutes.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.

Cooking time : 25 minutes
Serves 2 persons
