Sheetal Kamat

When Mom had come here, she had got couple of recipe magazines with her.. So I read this recipe from it and thought of trying it out today..

Poha Chaat
Ingredients
2 cup thin pohas
2 potatoes
1/2 spoon ginger paste
4-5 green chillies
1/2 cup curd
1-2 spoon Sugar
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds
A pinch of turmeric powder
1 spoon tamarind chutney
Oil

Method
  • Cook potatoes well in cooker and keep it aside to cool down
  • Sprinkle little water on pohas so that they become little soft
  • Mix crushed potato, ginger paste, finely chopped green chillies and salt to taste
  • Form small patties out of this mixture
  • Fry the patties by sprinkling little oil on a tawa
  • Mix curd with sugar well
  • Heat oil and let mustard seeds splutter in it
  • Add turmeric powder to it
  • Add this oil to the curd and mix well
  • Serve the patties of poha-potatoes topped with the prepared curd mixture and garnished with little tamarind chutney

Notes
You can optionally fry the patties by putting a small coat of breadcrums
I also thought of adding thinner yellow coloured 'shev' on this, but since i didn't have them today i am going to try it out next time

    initially i thot it need some more cooking ;-) .. was expecting something on the browner side :) ... but it turned out quite a tasty affair esp after the dahi was added :)

    If it is turned brown then pohas might become hard, so i guess cooking was correct :)
