Poha khichu - microwave recipes

poha khichu After a hectic trip to India, it is being bit difficult to get back to the usual routine. So microwave is a life saver for me at present. This simple breakfast dish adapted from Tarla Dalal's microwave cooking seems to be a variation of favourite Gujarathi delicacy usually made with rice flour.Sesame oil is used traditionally,but any other refined oil can be used.
Beaten rice or  poha- 2 cups
Water - 1 cup
Soda bicarb- a pinch
Roasted cumin seed powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
sesame oil- 1tsp
Chopped coriander- 1tsp
Salt to taste
Grind the poha in a blender till it resembles bread crumbs. Keep aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine water,soda bicarb,cumin seeds powder and salt and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Add the oil ,chilli powder,green chilli,and ground poha and mix well using a whisk so that no lumps remain.
Microwave on high for a minute.
Add the coriander and mix well.
Serve hot drizzled with sesame oil and chilli powder.
I am sending this recipe to easycrafts for WBB microwave foods.
