The idea for this dish is from one of Tarla Dalal's magazines. I make it as regular pohe, but replace the potatoes with garbanzo beans/chole. It makes for a quick and tasty breakfast dish.
Here's how I make it:
2 cups pohe (thick variety) - washed and drained
1 red onion - chopped
1 cup canned chole - rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen peas
For tempering - 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, pinch of asafotida, 1 green chilli - chopped, few curry leaves (optional)
1 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp lemon juice
Garnish - few chopped tomatoes &/or cilantro
Make the tempering my heating oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds. When they stop spluttering, add the cumin seeds, asafotida, chillies and curry leaves. Then add the chopped onions and saute for 5 - 7 mins till softened. Add the washed & drained pohe, chole and peas along with the salt, sugar, lemon juice and turmeric. Mix well with a gentle hand. Cover and cook on medium low heat for 5 - 10 mins.
Power Pohe are done. Garnish with chopped tomatoes/cilantro.
