During his bachelor life Sush used to cook breakfast every weekends and when he calls me on weekends I often ask him what he had for breakfast. Most of the time his answer was poha. I used to wonder what this poha was and was under the impression that it was something special and I never asked him what it was …
Months passed by and after our marriage one day he wanted to cook poha for me and I was hopefully waiting to taste this wonderful recipe. Finally poha was ready and when I tasted all my anticipation and imaginations crushed . It was the modified version of AVILU UPMAV my grandmother used to make !!!
Poha (Avil or Rice flakes) -250gms
Green chillies 4-5
Turmeric powder (a pinch)
