Wake Up And Get Going!!

Zzzzz my blog’s been sleeping for so many days so many months actually!! I shook it up and woke it up today.. date: 15:10:2011 time:8:00 AM India. It yawned and looked up at me with heavy eyes as if it woke up from a dream. WHAT?? it looked quizzingly at me. Wake up you lazy bum!! Do some activity!! Keep yourself updated talk to your neighbors and make new friends!
The activity started by brushing up a little!! Brushing up the bloooggg!! It started, by designing the header. Ummm.. it turned out OK, not as great as I wanted it to be, but at least I m started!! Ill upload a better one when I have time.

Blog:  Excuse me... enough of your ranting on… write something worthwhile or do something else!! What about some breakfast? I am hungry!!

Me: Humm right!! What will you have??

Blog:  what can you make??

Me:   Ummmmmm..the ummm went on for sometime but I couldn’t think of anything else, Poha!! So done POHA!! I like them with onions better than potatoes. You will love them too..

Recipe for my favourite kanda poha (a well known Indian breakfast)
Quick and easy to make


• Thick poha
• Onions (kanda)
• Chopped green chilly
• Turmeric powder (Haldi)
• Mustard seeds (rai)
• Cumin (Jeera)
• Curry leaf (kadi patta)
• Cinnamon (Dal chini powder)
• Grated Ginger(adrakh)
• Sugar
• Salt
• Black pepper powder (kali mirch)
• Red pepper powder (lal mirch)

Chop onions and green chilly, Grate some ginger.
Dampen the poha (flattened rice) they should me moist and nice!! Too much water will spoil the texture! Add sugar, salt, red pepper powder, black pepper powder and mix.
Now heat some oil and add cumin seeds and let the m  crackle. Now add jeera, green chillies, curry leaves, garlic, haldi and then add the onions. Cook till the onions turn golden brown!! Add the poha and mix well. Add salt to taste and some lemon juice. Mix well and serve.
You can use finely chopped coriander and grated fresh coconut to garnish the dish.
(A handful of poha is good enough for one person. So take the number of handfuls according to the number of servings)
