Coconut Poha

Poha is one of the quicker breakfasts cooked in an Indian kitchen. This coconut version is much faster and can be prepared in less than fifteen minutes as it doesn't involve sauteing any veggies. Also the addition of coconut adds a slight sweet tinge to the poha making it more delicious. Ingredients: Thick variety poha - 2 cups Grated coconut (fresh / frozen) - 1/2 cup Medium hot green chillies, finely chopped - 4 or 5 Salt - 1 tsp For seasoning - 3 or 4 Tbsp oil, a handful of peanuts, 1 Tbsp chanadal, 1 tsp mustard seeds, Curry leaves, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder Chopped cilantro (Optional) - 2 Tbsp Cooking: * Wash the poha thoroughly twice with water, drain all the water and keep it covered for about 6-7 minutes. * Meanwhile, chop the chillies, grate the coconut or zap in a MW for a minute if using frozen coconut. * Take a deep bottomed pan and heat the oil. Then add peanuts, chanadal, mustard seeds, green chillies, curry leaves and turmeric powder in the mentioned order. When peanuts and chanadal start to turn reddish, add the softened poha, grated coconut, salt and cilantro if using. * Turn around the poha mixture till all the ingredients are mixed well. Cook covered on low for five minutes. * Stir the content gently one more time before serving. Coconut poha tastes good when served hot / warm.

My kind of recipe- a 15 min one!:D
I should try adding coconut too. Considering how much I use it our preparations, I'm surprised that I make poha without it.
