Coconut Poha N Peanut Thuvaiyal / Chutney + Awards

             Hello Folks, hope you all had a great weekend. Here was not as good as previous, windy and cold weather and also not feeling well. Suffering with severe neck pain & took medicines, feeling better now. 
           Today's recipe is a simple Coconut Poha one of my fav breakfast. I made this long back and was in my draft for long time, And today to divert myself from the illness I am writing my coconut poha recipe along with my grand mom's Peanut Thogayal/Thuvaiyal...I like this tangy spicy peanut thuvaiyal with lemon rice / Tamarind rice / curd rice.

  2. Thick Poha/ Flattened rice    1 cup
  3. Fresh shredded coconut    1/2 cup or less.

  • Wash and soak poha for 2-3 minutes and then drain completely and keep aside.

  • Heat oil in a kadai, add the tempering ingredients one by one and fry lightly till the dal n nuts get fried golden brown.
  • Then add ginger,red chilli and curry leaves n fry lightly.

  • Now add shredded coconut, enough salt and fry the coconut for a minute.
  • After that add, drained poha and mix well and stir fry for a minute and alstly add some cilantro and turn off the stove.
  • That's it Simple and Tasty Coconut Poha is ready to serve.
  • To pair with this Poha  I made Peanut thuvaiyal, which is mild spicy and best for all kinds of variety rice like Lemon rice, Tamarind rice, Tomato Rice, Coconut rice/poha. and also you can make it to peanut chutney with tempering for Idly/Dosa/Pongal.

  • Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a pan, roast peanuts till it tunrs light golden brown n flavor comes.
  • Then add dry red chillies n tamarind and fry for a minute.
  • Then allow to cool it for a while and grind to a coarse paste with salt using very little water.
  • In case of chutney, grind with enough water like we do for coconut chutney and transfer it to a bowl.
