Rice flake breakfast


1 cup rice flakes (poha, aval, flattened or beaten rice)
2 cups cold water to wash and soak
2 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp onions chopped
1 green chillie chopped to taste
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp coriander leaves

Wash rice flakes in cold water and leave for about 2 to 3 minutes then squeeze out the water, leave it aside. If rice flakes are kept for a long time in water it will become soggy.

Heat oil add mustard seeds, then add fennel after that add cumin seeds. Add onions then green chillie, turmeric and salt. When onions are soft add the rice flakes and stir fry for about 2 minutes, press with a back of a ladle to keep the rice flakes separate from each other. Add coriander leaves and serve hot.

Can add vegetables such as carrots and peas after adding the onions, stir fry the vegetables a little before adding rice flakes.

  1. This is quite different from my typical breakfast of oatmeal. I don't like mustard seeds but besides that it sounds like a yummy breakfast!
