Cooking is number one hobby for most of the people, Not for me…. Never.
My favorite hobby is eating, cooking definitely doesn’t relaxes me, the cleaning after the cooking is so irritating and the time just doesn’t justify.
You spend hours in creating the perfect dish and it takes 5 mins- max 10 mins to finish and many a time there is no appreciation. So not worth it.
Still eating every meal outside is just not an option. So my solution is fast
cooking. Spend as little time as possible in cooking, yet keep it tasty and
well i try …really try it to be healthy.
one of my weekend breakfast delicacy is POHA, it is a simple recipe, few
ingredients as less as 5 and takes 10 mins to cook.
here is my version of poha- what do you need –
Poha (flattened Rice); mustard seeds, cooking oil, salt,
green chillies, groundnut (optional- i love it); onion; coriander leaves for
quantity- just go with your guts guys
Add a hand full of poha in a bowl, add water and let it rest for 2-3mins.
drain the water and keep it aside. ensure the poha’s are soft but not stuck to each other.
put a pan on the gas ( dont forget to light it :-)),
add oil. once the oil is hot, add groundnut and fry it till it is dark brown and keep aside.
in the hot oil, add mustard seeds.
add chopped onions, turmeric, chillis
cook till the onions are soft and light brown
Add the poha. cook for some more time add chopped coriander.
plate it up and viola ready to eat.
do have with a cup of hot ginger tea …enjoy
