I reach out a packet of Aval when I am craving for food. I reach out for the same bag when I run out of Idli/dosa batter and need a filling breakfast as quick fix. I reach out for the same rice flakes when I find shortage of rice for the dinner. Aval is such a demanding and loving thing in my family.
Aval or poha is so versatile ingredient that when you temper it with onions and spices turns in to aval upma, mix it with grated coconut and jaggery results in sweet poha, cook it with vegetables and bisi bele bath powder transforms in to exquisite one pot meal. Almost all dishes that we make using rice can be made by substituting rice by poha.
Aval upma, a very quick, delicious breakfast or evening snack made in few minutes but fills your tummy to the full. I am posting the basic version of upma using only handful of spices and ingredients, feel free to include some cooked vegetables and greens, you will still be pleasantly surprised to find a bowl of deliciously tasting poha upma. Move on to the recipe.
Meet you all with one more interesting recipe. Till then bye.
