Poha/ Aval is also called as flattened rice in English and children love any dish made with this. I like how simple the recipes is, all we need to do is wash it well at least twice in running away and drain away the water and let it sit for 20 mins. Reason for letting it sit for 20 mins is for the aval/ Poha to get soft. This helps in getting uoma cooked very easily. Always let poha/ Aval get soft before adding into the hot pan. Dont over soak in water, then it will become mushy and wont hold shape. Always just wash them and drain them immediately. Poha should always be soft and never forget to drain the water after they are washed. Now off to poha upma recipe.
