Red Rice Poha Upma

Lately, I have been on the lookout for brown rice poha (flattened rice). Although I haven’t found brown rice poha, I did come across some Organic red rice poha.



3/4 cup poha
1/2 onion sliced thin
1 small potato cut into small pieces
1 jalapeno sliced
1 carrot grated
1-2 tsp oil
1 tbsp channa dal
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tsp mustard seeds
a handful of cashews or peanuts
few curry leaves
salt to taste


In a pan, heat the oil. Add channa dal, urad dal, cashews or peanuts (or both), and mustard seeds and fry till lightly golden. Add curry leaves and jalapeno and fry for a few seconds. Add onion, potato and carrot and fry on medium low mixing as necessary to prevent sticking, until onion are translucent and golden and potatoes crispy.


Meanwhile rinse poha in some cold water. Don’t leave it in too long, or it will get soft and mushy. Rinse, and squeeze out the water and add to the pan above. Mix well. Season with salt and leave for 1-2 minutes. Can drizzle some lemon juice if desired.
