This is a common breakfast thingee at home. My mom used to make it almost every weekend. A very simple and I guess very healthy dish as well. It hardly takes 10 minutes to make it and a spoon of oil is more than enough. You can buy Poha (rice flakes) from any Desi Indian shop.

* Poha (Rice flakes) 1 cup
* Mustard seeds 1 tsp
* Saunf 1 tsp
* Onion 1 small
* Green chillies 2-3
* Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
* Salt
* Lemon juice 1 tbsp

Heat oil, add mustard seeds and saunf (fennel seeds). Add finely chopped onions. Cook till transparent.
Add chopped green chillies, salt and turmeric powder.
Soak rice flakes in water for a minute. Drain water and squeeze lightly to drain away excess water.
Add soaked poha to the masala and stir well. Cook for a minute.
Serve hot garnished with lemon juice and corriander leaves.

Poha look nice. It is indeed a quick-to-make yet healthy dish. Btw, you use Saunf in it? That's new to me. We use Jeera/cumin seeds instead.

Thanks Vaishali

Yeah I add saunf in it. It gives it a very pleasant and distict flavour. You should try once :-)
