My Notes

  • I usually soak the poha while starting to temper so by the time the tempering items are done poha becomes soft.Take care not to make the poha mushy so be careful in adding water.You can use thick or thin poha but accordingly soaking time will vary.
  • I pressure cooked the potatoes before hand and then added. You can even add raw potatoes and cook it along with onions.
  • Dont make it too dry, I usually dont drain the excess water(as I add only little water) to make the poha moist in the upma.Sugar gives a nice twist to this recipe so dont skip it.
