I never thought making this quick Tiffin / Snack would take me so many days to finally make it! Really life is sometimes very strange and you never know where it is going. When we had decided we are going to feature Quick Snacks or Tiffin this month, I knew what I was going to make. But actually getting to do it was the most difficult thing in the end. And it was supposed to be quick!..

Anyway this recipe is really one of those dishes that gets done in flat 10 minutes. Works out best when you want to clean up your fridge or have something for a quick bite. I am used to making the regular Poha with the thick variety of Poha where one needs to soak and cook the poha. This one needs to be added as such. Add whatever vegetable you have on hand to increase the nutrition value

Vegetable Poha for a Quick Tiffin

Recipe: Vegetable Poha for a Quick Tiffin
Preparation Time : 10 mins
Serves : 2
Recipe Level: Easy/ Beginner
Recipe/Post by: Srivalli

Ingredients Needed:

1 cup Flat Poha / Thin Poha / Atukulu
1 cup Finely chopped vegetables like Carrot, Capsicum, Beans
Handful of Fresh Green Peas
Onions a quarter of a medium
2 Green Chilies
Handful of Roasted Peanut
1 -2 tsp Oil
Salt to taste

Method to Prepare:
  1. Heat a non stick pan with oil and sauté onions well along with green chilies and roasted peanuts.
  2. Add finely chopped vegetables, salt and cover with a lid for 5 mins. Remove the lid and sauté again.
  3. When the vegetables are almost done, remove from heat, add the beaten rice and mix well.
  4. Since the beaten rice is very thin, it need not be cooked or soaked.

Special Notes/Tips:

  • When you are using the thinner type, you got to ensure you don't cook it. It gets soft with the heat that is already there in the cooked vegetables.
  • Add your vegetable of choice. This really one of those dishes that can be adapted to our liking.
  • Roasted Peanut gives such a wonderful crunchy taste to the entire dish.
