POHA CHUDVA

Ingredients:

1 tbsp peanuts,
1 tbsp cashewnuts - broken,
1 tbsp roasted channa dal / Daliya,
2 green chillies- thinly sliced,
few curry leaves- chopped,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp sugar,

1 tbsp oil

Method:
Place the Poha in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes and keep this aside. Heat the oil in a pan, add curry leaves and green chillies and saute for few minutes untill they become crisp. Now add groundnuts, daliya and cashewnuts and cook for 1 -2 minutes on low flame stirring continuously. Add turmeric powder and mix well. Now add the rice flakes /poha and salt and mix well to blend it with other ingredients or till it turns yellow in colour. Cook for another 2 minutes or until the rice flakes become crisp. Turn off the stove and sprinkle with the sugar.
Let it cool completely before storing it in an air-tight container.
