Millet Poha

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 4 People

Simple Spiced Poha/Aval is the most preferred dish when you want a quick, tasty and light breakfast. Aval made of millets are equally tasty. I have tried all varieties of millet pohas and they turn out beautiful with their distinct taste.

  3. In a pan, add oil and do the tempering of mustard seeds, asafoetida, green chillies, peanuts and curry leaves.
