   Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

2. Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

3. Urad dal – 2 tsp (optional)

   Peanuts – 2 – 3 tbsp

Method

1. Put the thick poha in a colander and hold it under running water for about 30 – 45 seconds. Mix the poha with 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and little salt. Set aside for 15 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add urad dal and peanuts. When they turn golden, add potato cubes and little salt. Cover and cook for a few minutes at medium-low heat. When they are cooked, add onion and green chilies. Saute for a minute or two and add the poha. Mix well. Check for salt. Cover and cook for a few minutes. If the poha looks very dry, sprinkle little water and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Switch off. Add lemon juice after 2 minutes and mix well. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with curd / jalebis.
