“Poha“makes the perfect breakfast, simple dish consists of beaten rice and vegetables but here is the variation; I used scrambled egg instead of vegetables and decorated with poached egg before serving.

A complete and balanced combination of protein and carbohydrates is ideal for everyone.

In this recipe egg are used in two ways; 1st to scramble into poha and 2nd to decorate with poached egg. In this way the dish is not only appealing but gives satisfaction too.

  • Spring onion: 50 gm
  • Onion: 2 no. (Medium size)
  • Green chilly: 1-2 no.

Preparation:

  1. Cut onion, red capsicum and spring onions into small pieces, keep aside.
  2. Slit green chili and stuff with salt.
  3. Wash poha properly (at least twice). Soak with water (About 50 ml/5 table spoon).
  4. Cover it and leave it for about 10 -15 minutes; add half of salt, chili powder and turmeric powder into the poha.
  5. Blend one egg, keep aside.

Method:

  1. Heat a fry pan with 1 teaspoon oil; stir fry groundnut on lower flame for 3-4 minutes. Stir continuously till brown color appears. Keep aside.
