While doing the pooja amma keep the soaked poha and sugar and milk separately, finally my father mix everything and offer to god, and dispute it to family members, we simply licking the palm every time. Some times amma makes it with sugar and coconut too, So those who does not have time, or wanted it to be simple one can easily try this recipe, very very easy. You can even ask your kids to prepare this, make sure the poha is moist and cooked ,
Preparation time : 20 minutes
mixing time : 5 minutes
servings – 2 people
Poha – 1 cup (i used Red for the nutrition value you can use any white thin / thick aval)
Warm water – 3 to 4 tbsp
sugar – 2 tbsp
coconut – 3 tbsp grated
Elachi – 2 nos
Take the large vessel and pour the poha (Aval ) sprinkle some water and mix well , make sure you sprinkle do not pour , you should feel the moist texture, then keep aside and mean while prepare the grated coconut.
After 10 minutes, again sprinkle some water and mix well check the moist texture , then leave aside for 5 more minutes, so that i absorbs some water and you can see the cooked poha (since we used warm water) , add the grated coconut, sugar and elachi mix well .All set to offer to GOD.
- Do not add more water, as it wll be become very liquid and poha wll get cooked very easily.
- I used the medium slim poha, so it depends on the thin or thick the time and water level vary, so plan it accordingly.
- For the nutritional value i added red poha you can use any type of white poha
- In the same method, you can try with jaggery and cashew .
