Hema's recipe - Poha with Pepper and Coconut/ Milagu Aval

Poha/aval is an easy to cook nutritious snack. It is easily digestable and can be had for breakfast. Poha can be done in many ways.

Mostly in south, poha is done this way and here goes the recipe. Sending this to CWS-Pepper guest hosted by Padma, event by Priya.


1) Poha/aval - 1 cup
2) Mustard - 1/2 tsp
3) Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
4) Red chilli - 2
5) Pepper powder - 1 tsp
6) Coconut - 2 tsp
7) Curry leaves - a few
8) Salt to taste
9) Oil - 2 tsp


1) Wash the poha and soak it in water. Do not add too much water as it will get mushy. Keep aside for 10 mins until the water is absorbed.
2) Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, urad dal, chilli, curry leaves and poha. Mix everything well. Add salt & mix it again. Let it cook for sometime.
3) Finally add pepper powder and coconut. keep for 2 mins and switch off the flame.
