I make Poha, Atukulu, or Beaten Rice for breakfast every week. I make it in very many different ways as:
- Kanda Pohe or with Onion
- Batata Pohe or with Potato
- Vangi Pohe or with Brinjal
- Matar Pohe with Peas
- Indori Pohe as made in Indore
- North Indian Style Poha with Fried Potatoes and Peanuts
- Dadpe Pohe, an uncooked version from Maharashtra
- Atukula Daddojanam or Mosaru Avalakki with Dahi or Yogurt
- Benarasi Chura Matar
Today I am presenting Nimmakaya Atukula Pulihora, which is a easy-to-make snack or breakfast; it is light yet filling. It is a variation of Nimmakaya Pulihora which is made with rice.
