Am I echoing OPOS these days?? Lolz, it is so inspiring I could not resist trying all possible opos recipes one by one. My friend Ravneet introduced me to this wonderful process and as I said in my earlier post I am following her opos way!!
Having tried opos tea, my next step was trying her OPOS poha upma. Though there was not much difference in method than utensil but using Pressure Cooker gave me a pleasant surpise... it came out so well, soft and moist.
I never imagined one day I will be using pressure cooker for these snacks /breakfast. I had always used it for pulses, khichdi and rice, etc. But learning new recipes and methods in PC is giving me new experience. More than that, I am saving time and fuel. recipes are more healthy now as lesser use of oil is there.
I followed Opos poha upma from my friends blog which has two versions but I tried PC one so will share my feedback with you here. You can find original recipe on her blog link here.
Now before we proceed to recipe, I must tell you that depending upon the quantity of food you are preparing you must use PC. Here I used 2 ltr cooker to make 2 plates of Poha.
Few kari patta
1 tsp rai
1 tsp oil ( I used olive oil)
1 small onion sliced
Few roasted peanuts and 1/2cup steamed veggies like beans, carrot, peas, etc (optional as per your choice)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
ginger grated 1/2 tsp
chopped green chillies if you want
1 tsp salt or as per taste
Lemon juice 1/2 tsp and chopped coriander leaves or sev to garnish.
Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder to 1/2 cup water. Mix well and soak Poha in this water. keep aside.
Put Pressure cooker on medium gas.
Add oil, when hot put rai when it starts spluttering add onion peanuts veggies, kari patta grated ginger salt and chillies. saute.
Add red chillie powder turmeric powder and 1 tbsp water. Close the lid and give 1 whistle.
Open the lid Add poha (water gets soaked up) and mix well.
switch off the flame and transfer the Poha to serving bowl. Sprinkle lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves or sev as you may like.
P.S. I have not used peanuts and veggies in picture displayed.
