Coconut Poha...Kobbari Atukulu

Print Friendly and PDF
Poha recipes comes to rescue when nothing is planned in advance for breakfast as they are very simple and hardly takes 15-20 mins to prepare.This is another variety of poha which we prepare at home very often and is equally tasty as the Atukula upma and Gojju avalakki .This is prepared especially on festivals as it does not include any onion and garlic.Even I prepared this long back during a festival (I don't remember which one it was) and also prepared Hayagreeva as a sweet which you can see in the background.Coconut poha has a mild taste and a mix of coconut,cashew and groundnut pieces with a hint of lemon makes it more tastier.If you have not tried this before give it a try,I am sure you will love the simplicity of this poha.

Ingredients:

2 cups poha/flattened rice/Atukulu
3/4 cup grated fresh coconut
7-8 green chillies,thinly sliced
2-3 red chillies,torn roughly
2 tbsp chopped cashewnuts
2 tbsp ground nuts
1 tbsp chana dal
2 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
a sprig of curry leaves
juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp chopped coriander
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste


Method:

  • Clean and wash poha in running water once or twice and remove all the water from it and leave it aside for 10 mins until it is soft.Check it in between and if required sprinkle few drops of water over it.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and crackle mustard seeds and add groundnuts and fry until they are red in color.
  • Add cashewnuts,chana dal and urad dal and fry until they turn golden brown and then add curry leaves,green chillies,red chillies and fry for 1-2 mins and then add half the grated coconut and fry for a minute.
  • Add soaked poha,remaining grated coconut and salt to it and mix well and cover it with lid an dcook for 2 mins over low flame.
  • Add lemon juice and chopped coriander to it and mix well.
Serve it hot with some chips/fryums.
