Atukula Chudwa/Poha

Today I am posting a very authentic, easy tasty snack item of North & South India. A very light snack, One thing that I want to share about authentic taste's is we may taste many innovative, new recipes with a variety of ingredients, but it's taste will not beat the authentic dish's taste, isn't it? My main intention of sharing these authentic recipe's for the reason that we may forget that food in this fast, hectic schedule, but we should share this wonderful tatse's to our kids a part from pizza's, burger's. I am sure they will enjoy this..


Atukulu/Beaten Rice Flakes - 3 cups


Oil - 3 tablespoons

Mustard seeds - 2 teaspoons

Black Gram Dal - 2 teaspoons

Jeera - 2 teaspoons

Green Chillies -3(Slit and halved)

Ground Nuts - 1/2 cup

Putana - 1/2 cup

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Salt - 1 teaspoon(adjust)

Curry leaves - 7
