Here is a quick vegan recipe which is one of my favorites. It mainly constitutes of beaten rice (called poha or Chiwda in India) and ensures that you have your healthy intake of carbohydrates protein and vitamin C through a single dish without the extra calories.
Vegetable Oil - 1 Tsp
Beaten Rice – 200 grams
Tomato – 1 small
Peanuts – ½ cup or less
Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
Salt - to taste
Optional: fresh coriander leaves, lemon, onion, black pepper powder, red chilli powder
Soak the beaten rice in water for 5 minutes and strain the water.
Heat some vegetable oil in a pan and add the peanuts. Allow them to roast and become slightly dark in color. Stir once or twice in between. This will take 1-2 minutes. Now add mustard seeds and add tomatoes after few seconds. Stir again. Add salt and any other optional ingredients like turmeric powder, black pepper etc. I like it a little bland, but a pinch of black pepper or red chilli powder add to the taste for most people.
After the tomatoes have softened, add the soaked beaten rice and stir. Keep on low heat and stir for a minute. Your Poha is now ready to eat. You can add few lemon drops and freshly cut coriander for garnishing.
If you are fond of onions, you can also fry them and add to this recipe before adding the soaked beaten rice.
This recipe takes just 5 to 10 minutes to prepare and is quite filling. You can safely give it to your kids because it is nutritious and easy to digest. Try this out and let me know if you liked it.
