Starting from simple preparation in beaten rice ie…..poha, we… people of south India make varieties of dishes using beaten rice, with or without vegetables, and we call it as ‘ oggarane(tempering) avalakki(poha)’. It is almost a regular breakfast dish in many south Indian households as it is quick and easy to prepare and a time saver as well. Today I’m going to share one such recipe with you all. Besides being easy & quick to prepare, it is a very healthy breakfast dish which is fat free, heart friendly and packed with iron and other vitamins & minerals and is very filling also.
